As the final project, for our 6 week UX/UI bootcamp at Ironhack, we were given 2 weeks to come up with a UX/UI design case study.
My proposition offers a framework for sport’s related apps to incorporate a marketplace to their platforms. This way, users can also find activities and experiences related to their favourite sports, without having to leave their platform/app of reference.
In order to limit the work to a specific context and activity, I have chosen to concentrate on surfing. Among other apps, for this case study, I have analysed Windguru, Magicseaweed and Glassy. All of them are being used by a large number of people from all over the world, but none of them offers the possibility of helping their users to find equipment or book a lesson. None of them allows professionals or business to offer their services either.
By connecting users to professionals using Tivo, the evaluation system could generate a database that would allow business to grow in terms of sales and reputation. Also users could choose the best suited option for them by searching based on a specific location.
One important feature to be incorporated to the framework has to do with surf instructors habits. This particular user-type could be especially interested in a service that would allow them to offer their teaching services at any specific location at any given time. This will allow the profile and reputation to follow the service provider even when travelling. This will improve the quality of service and flexibility in terms of time and location of service provision.
