Social media can bring together creatives and offer a platform to share creative works. However, for creatives who would like to collaborate on projects through these platforms, there are often many hurdles such as finding the right people with the appropriate background & experience or people who would be interested in a passion project without compensation.

For the mobile app design, I created wireframes to explore the user flow and layout of the features.
I tested the app on users with a prototype flow to identify features that can be improved.
The layout of the project thumbnails should include more information regarding the project roles and team.
Users were able to navigate through the main flow, but some actions such as “assign tasks” were not clear.
The layout is user-friendly and minimal, but there should be more focus on collaboration features.
The Onboarding process presents interest-related questions to create a user profile & recommendations.
