Pick Up Games
I was the sole designer for this project, and doubled as the front-end developer as well. I both led the research analysis and crafting of the user personas, and produced the high-fidelity prototype on Figma.

The ProjectResearching and crafting our problem statement
The problem that we identified was that Singaporeans lack the
motivation to exercise and keep themselves healthy, especially if
they were not in existing sporting clubs. We also discovered that
those without a community they can regularly exercise with tended
to be less motivated to exercise.
Delving deeper into this insight, we conducted user interviews with youths aged 20 to 25 (n=15) and further identified several pain points that lead to this problem. We came up with the following 2 personas:
The Problem Statement
From our initial research and crafted user personas, we thus came up with the following problem statement which our android application will aim to address:
What people need is the ability to find out what (sport) activities are going on around them that they can join
ProtypingDesigning the key features
To directly tackle the pain points of The Social Butterfly user
persona, we made sure it was easy for users to organise their
own activities. We purposely used a bottom navigation bar with
the '+' which will open a pop up for filling in the information
needed to create an activity. From the moment the user logs into
the app, the user will thus be able to create their own activity
from any screen.
We also made sure that the pop up only required necessary fields to create an activity, and we used drop down fields to encourage user friendly behaviour.
Finding Activities to Join
As for the pain points of the No One Jio Me user persona, we
also made it a point to keep the finding of activities process
simple and straight forward. From the home page's "NEW
ACTIVITIES" section, users can see the upcoming activities they
can join, and even filter by date, sport and location as
according to their preferences.
To sign up, user can simply tap on the card to confirm their interest. Whatever event they have signed up for will then appear on the home page's "UPCOMING ACTIVITIES" section for easy viewing.
User Profile Summary
The user can also easily view a summary of the activities they
have joined or organised in their profile page.
Alternatively, they can edit their profile or notification preferences here to suit their interests.
Creating the AppHow I contributed to the team
As the UI/UX Designer and frontend developer, I created the
prototype and assets on Figma, which I then translated into the
android application. This entire process took about 3 months,
where I learnt how to use Android Studio and created the XML
fragments for our UI.
I also worked very closely with our backend developer to ensure that the frontend UI linked seamlessly to our backend database, and tested each feature for bugs.
Below is a short video we made showcasing the actual app that we made, as well as the link to our Github for more information on the technical features of it.
