A little bit of context

During this (really) weird period of time, health has taken a whole new meaning. Since Coronavirus, people realized how much they should take care of themselves, both physically and mentally.

This trend around wellness is not new though and will likely become more and more important in the next few years. According to the Global Wellness Institute “The global wellness economy is currently valued at $4.5 trillion.”(2018 data)

But what is wellness ?

According to the National Wellness Institute, wellness is considered, “an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence”.

Scope of the Project

As part of a UI exercise, I was asked to introduce a new feature into the Soundcloud app that would allow artists to get booked to private parties, or small events, due to covid restrictions and clubs closings.

Then, we found a concept that could answer the pain points raised during user interviews.

Some background

As part of the required Prework prior to a UX/UI Bootcamp that I will attend at Ironhack Paris, I’m going to “reverse-engineer” a selected user flow on the app of my choice in mid-fi wireframes and prototype them using Figma.

The app I chose to work on for this challenge is called Choose.


Overview of the scenario

This challenge is part of the required prework for the UX/UI bootcamp that I will attend at Ironhack, Paris.

In this exercise, I will perform a usability testing of a metasearch, according to a preselected user type. I will then redesign one of the main pain points I found during the test sessions and propose a solution in low-fi and mid-fi wireframes using Figma.

Who is my audience ?

My selected user type is a group of 4 friends, planning a big trip, one year in advance. Their chosen destination is Argentina. …
