Like all of the best passion projects, this one stemmed from a problem I personally experience. Due to not finding a niche of friends with a similar preference in music and enjoying mostly under-the-radar bands. (I mean who wouldn’t want to see a DJ duo who remixes Fleetwood Mac songs?)
Point is, if I can’t find someone to attend a show with, I won’t go.
Yet nothing is worse than the following days when I learn that a coworker ended up going or see an acquintance’s photo on social media. There’s got to be a better way to go about this.
To validate the problem, I conducted user interviews. I spoke to six 24-35 year old music fans.
Is anyone out there providing a similar feature?
I quickly found the need to recreate paper prototype to not only eliminate feature creep (users deemed scanning of iTunes/Spotify confusing), but also to better visualize the end product. Grid papers were used for better visual representation.
Illustrating all of the visual features by putting pencil to paper was a refreshing change of pace from relying on Adobe’s Creative Suite.
