Exhibyt: Feedback giving app
Exhibyt is an app that culminated from a Human Computer Interaction class project. I was a designer working with developers Tara Iyer, Christina Pan, and Sam Reamer to create this native Android app that allows amateur artists to upload their artwork to request feedback from other artists on this social platform.
My role involved conducting ethnographic interviews, sketching prototypes, creating Figma/Sketch screens, incorporating heuristic evaluation feedback, and some front end XML coding.
After our needfinding, we moved forward with idea of building an app to allow users to upload a collection of artwork and request specific feedback from other users. By allowing the artists themselves to dictate the terms of what kind of feedback they receive, our app provides users with a space to receive useful feedback. We wanted the interface to focus on the artwork rather than the artist.
I drew some storyboards for possible task interactions.
I built a paper prototype based on the sketches and tested that with users. After receiving feedback, I created a series of screens on Figma. Because we had less than two weeks to implement the final app, I decided to design using the framework of Google Material design for easier handoff to the developers.
After creating screens on Figma, I mapped out the UX interactions based on user testing of the paper prototype and the planned task flows.
Implemented screens in Android Studio.
