In early 2014, my friend, Dwight-Anthony Augustin, and I decided to create an app that would be useful and available to everyone for free. The idea of See You There was to develop an app that solves the issue of not being able to find your friends to meet with in a fast and simple way. By simple I mean in a way that first time users of the app would intuitively know how to operate the app the very first time they use it.
For the project my role was to be the creative director and UX designer for the app. I designed how each screen would look and feel, picked which colors would represent the right atmosphere of the app, and determined the overall layout of the app for the best user experience. I also had to do plenty of research to be familiar with Google Material Design guidelines for design to reduce the amount of learning needed to use the app.
