- User Experience Design
- User Experience Mapping
- User Flow
- Wireframe Mapping
Travel service industry is a very fragmented market. The challenge is to look at the entire user experience and system for opportunities. Understand how it can be improved and what can be leverage. Prioritize what should be the focus on as an entry point to penetrate the market.
The prototype is executed to demonstrate the entire experience of travel being streamlined. A photo based travel journal is proposed as an entry point to cultivate a community of travel enthusiasts to share, explore and create more memories.
Capture Memories & Contribute
As of today, there are 95 million photos taken on Instagram with hashtag “travel”. What if we can leverage the metadata, geolocation and time stamps, from the photo taken on the mobile and visualizes where the user been around the world?
The journal serves as a trip overview that inspires other travelers. So they can learn how the contributor planned their trip, what spots they visited and their experience. Wireframes on the interaction detail were iterated to allow users to consume the relevant information.
Save your dream spot
Each photo is tied to a geolocation. When you browse through the trip details, specific location will be highlighted on the map. If you are interested, you can save the dream spot for future planning.
