User Research

Our user research team had conducted most of the user research when I joined the team. In order to get the insight into our target users, I collaborated with the research team to understand their user goals and their pain points.

Persona

wifi

Yuki

An event app user

Pain Points

Current social event apps do not have user ratings and reviews for event hosts

Communication with other event participants is very inefficient

Needs
wifi

Know ratings and reviews from guests of a host’s past events

wifi

Easy to view, communicate and connect to other event participants

wifi

Create events of their own with customizable setting of multiple ticket prices

Storyboard

wifi

Sean loves attending different social events

wifi

He found he could not check rating about an event or view past events of a host on current event apps

wifi

He also found he could not chat with other participants after joining an event in group chat

wifi

With Jolly, checking ratings of current or past event of the host is very helpful for decision making

wifi

Sean can also interact with other participants in specific event group chat

wifi

Jolly makes his social life easier than ever!

Current Solutions

Based on our interviewees' thoughts, we used three popular event apps and apps with event planning feature for a week as a new user. Here I summarized our user experience as this comparative analysis:

wifi

wifi

Customizable event options

Our app needs to allow users to create and customize their own events

Ideation

Design Iteration

UX Problem

Some participants mentioned that the parallel two buttons are easy to be mis-touched.

wifi
UX Improvement

I only kept “join” button as the primary entry point to the next page.

wifi
UX Problem

In the original design of create event page, the grid layout was thought to be colorful but not practical as it brings trouble when setting up multiple levels of ticket prices

wifi
UX Improvement

I used a more traditional but more straightforward design of create event flow with easy setup of multiple levels of ticket price
