Project Background

The Hand Up Day platform (owned by Being Agency) functions to help the right people get connected. It gives people that all-important boost in life through the transfer of time, skills and knowledge.

The interesting part of this project is that it has two user groups: seekers and givers. The needs of seekers and givers are different. Therefore, we need to accommodate them all.

Based on the existing research data, two UX designers and I created 18 screens of paper prototypes and imported them to Marvel to conduct user testing. We tested the MVP concepts of "creating profiles", "connecting", and "expressing gratitude" with 4 givers to find out their expectations during the whole journey.

To observe the physical behavior of seekers and givers and better understand their needs, I went to the event in which Hand Up Day participated. After the observation of givers and seekers, I found the artifacts which been overlooked and made efforts to solve this issue when I started to design.

Sketch & Ideation
Based on 3 insights, I started the design process with low fidelity sketches. This is the way I iterate through many design options quickly.

Style Guide

Before jumping into prototyping, I decided to create this style guide to ensure consistency in terms of typography, color, buttons, elements shadows, etc.

Implement Grid

I always like implementing grids while designing for a website, mobile device or printing, since it can help with:

· Keeping Content Organized

· Increasing Efficiency

· Enhancing Visual Hierarchy

· Encouraging White Space

· Making UI Responsive

Symbols for Seeker & Giver
Being a seeker is like sailing in the sea. Sometimes you might lose directions. A giver who gives advice and holds your hands to guide you along the way is like a lighthouse in the night. This is my initial idea of creating these symbols.
