Over the summer of 2020, I designed at an early-stage YC startup. They had recently pivoted, and was focused on delivering a chat service with built in short-cuts, such as subscriptions, payments and chat monitoring.
I joined as a contract designer working on their UX & UI design, and I conceptualized their first UI iteration 😎 (they've recently rebranded!)
During this design project, the biggest challenge was dealing with ambiguity. A lot of it.
There was no clear research insights, or a design direction - just guiding requests from Product Hunt and the first list of users who signed up, like Jane.
Jane needs to collect payments, check who has paid (or not), remove unfriendly participants - oh, and get paid in a timely manner.
She needs an all-in-one platform to do it all.
Quorum is currently building their next version of the app.
With that said, I'm happy to chat more about my experiences. (Or you can try it out!)
Due to the project scope and time constraint, his was mostly a UI re-skin. The goal of this design was focused on fundraising.
In retrospect, I would worry less about the pixel-perfections and more on the product as a whole. Which leads to my next point...
We had to get the whole app out, which was 20+ some screens. As a result, not all pages had to be custom designed.
