In this project, we are designing a digital product for a niche audience. In my case, I am creating an app where sports jersey collectors can come and show-off their collection, buy or sell jerseys, and discuss with friends around the world about new and trending jerseys, or relive memories that retro designs evoke. We were also given the liberty to select the device this tool would be used on, so I am making an app for a tablet.

Below is an embedded file of the tablet version of my jersey collection app. Click the white bar at the bottom of the file to go to the website, where you are able to navigate through the app as if you were a user by clicking the "play" triangle in the top right hand corner of your screen. Within this app you can:
– View your own jersey collection
– View jerseys from a variety of sports
– Search for jerseys by sport, league, team, or even player
– Add jerseys to your wishlist by tapping the heart icon
– Purchase jerseys that are for sale
– Message with friends and other users
I made a pretty drastic change in the look of the app since my last entry by changing the feed from the masonry grid. I wasn't satisfied with how it looked like another social media platform, so I changed how the jerseys are presented to feel more like a marketplace app. I also added a edit profile pop-up tab that allows you to view settings, change your location, edit your favorite teams, view order history, and add an account or log out of the current account. Below the Figma prototype, I have also included the brand guidelines that I made for this app.

Below are the exported art boards from my Figma file. One member of my audience would like to see a trading feature added, which I had in my notes but hadn't gotten to yet for today. Another member said he enjoyed the colors but something within the look felt off but couldn't pin point what it was so I'm going to follow up with him on that. None of my audience had any trouble with their tasks though so that's a positive. I think my next steps are to add that trading option, look at a few other ways I might be able to lay this out, and add a logout button in the profile.

For today, I drew some low-fidelity mockups of most of my screens, there are still a few more that I have to do but I wanted to get the main screens done first.
Screen 1: Main home screen where you can view of feed of jerseys in a grid, kind of like Pinterest's feed.
Screen 2: If you click on a sport on screen 1, you will be brought to this screen where you can view just jerseys within that sport.
Screen 3: If you click on a jersey to purchase or just view, you will be brought to screen 3 where you can view more info on that jersey.
Screen 4: This screen is the checkout page if you do end up wanting to purchase a jersey from someone.

Below is the pitch for my app for the sports jersey collector niche. The last slide contains the feedback that I received from my audience that is due on Tuesday, April 27.
