    Lending and Financing App Image

    Lending and Financing App

    UX and UI Design for a blockchain-based lending and financing App.

    App Testing Platform Image

    App Testing Platform

    The goal was to conceive the UX and UI of a web-based, automated app-testing system. The platform is part of Samsung developers' program.

    We created the user experience and interface around that project from the first concept to the last visual part.

    The submission and navigation through different tests and related modules needed to be as intuitive and quick as possible.

    Designs were made through a lot of

    iterations and feedback with a product owner and an in-house team. Going from the information architecture, low-fidelity to high-fidelity wireframes and finally the UI and icons. Results & Outcomes
    • Reduced user errors and abandoned test submissions
    • Increased app submission to Samsung Galaxy Store
    Future of bike sharing Image

    Future of bike sharing

    A multi-platform app where users can partake in the city bike service in Vienna; discovering available bikes or empty docks and renting/unlocking bikes by scanning the QR codes on the bikes with a smartphone.

    We created the UX and UI for the mobile and wearables.

    The main goal was to make the process of renting a bike and bringing it back easier and smoother for already registered users and new ones. 

    We

    used QR code technology so that there would be no need to go through a bike station in order to unlock a bike.
    Weather App Image

    Weather App

    Morecast is a multiplatform weather app which provides high-quality and professional level data to customers.

    We led the design team (UX and UI) of a Morecast app (a Red Bull company) for a year.

    We went through a weekly design sprint similar to the Google Design Sprint, validating new features, and the concepts and changes across Morecast and related-Red Bull products.

    The app was designed and built for

    iPhone, iPad, the Apple watch, Android phones, tablets, and wearables. Results & Outcomes
    • App was downloaded by more than 15 million users with 4.6-star average rating in the app stores
    • Received international coverage in diverse outlets
    • Brought PR value to Red bull brands and events
    • Increased Sales via brand awareness, which impacted the performance of B2B weather-related products

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I'm the co-founder and CTO of a Fintech / Blockchain platform. We are creating and customizing blockchain payment processing services. We also have partnerships with other vendors and using our portal to sell their solutions.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Adam Fard UX Studio?

    We had an MVP but wanted to rethink the product and redesign it from scratch. During the investor presentation and beta testing, we noticed many issues with the usability of that MVP. We didn't have any UX or product design expertise and needed a partner to help us with that challenge.

    What were your goals for this project?

    We wanted to improve the usability and make the product unique. Our customers are tech-savvy but we wanted to stand out from competitors by providing a user-first experience.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    I read a series of articles from their website and followed their activity on LinkedIn. After a couple of exchange and first introductory call with the team, we decided to work with them. Their approach is different from other agencies we approached.

    Describe the project in detail.

    We presented our product, early research we did, along with the first feedback and milestones we were planning to hit. Adam Fard Studio conducted a first design sprint with our team. They then tested an early prototype and iterate with another workshop and testing. Unfortunately, we couldn't implement that solution entirely because of some new technical difficulties we were not aware of. The team was reactive and after some quick iterations, they showed us a new solution, which was positively validated during the tests with users. They then work on the visual elements, assets, and specs for our devs.

    What was the team composition?

    Lead UX Designer, UX Designer and Researcher

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

    Positive feedback from our beta users and investors. Many important features are now understood.

    How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

    It was very easy to communicate with them. We used email, Slack, Hangouts, and Figma. We were always updated with the progress and had scheduled a weekly call.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their expertise. They understand our business, value proposition, and USP. They were incredibly creative and not afraid to try new or uncommon solutions out. The remote communication was also really efficient.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    I don't think so. We were very happy with the process and our collaboration.
