JamSpace App for Musicians (Concept, 2016)
This is a concept app that I designed and wire-framed for my UC Berkeley Extension Intro to UX Design class, Summer 2016. The idea was that musicians could use a mobile app to book practice spaces similarly to the model of AirBnB. The overall concept is the same, only geared towards musicians and their practice needs. Some amount of UX research was performed, involving mock interviews and personas. A simulation of the app was created with InVision. Below are the first three screens and some additional transactional screens. These were designed and output in Sketch.
This is the load screen when you first load the app.
Here is the primary search page, with a few options to search by city.
Here is how the results page would display hits after performing a preliminary search.

From concept to execution..
For the class, we were required to come up with an idea for an interesting and useful mobile app concept that would appeal to us personally. As a longtime musician, I felt that having an app in the style of AirBnB for renting practice spaces for either rehearsing or touring, was a great idea. I loved the UI and fluid design of AirBnB and emulated it to a large degree for my project.
Creating the user flow through the use of paper prototypes is a standard User Experience Design practice, and I was required to produce them for this project as well.
