This is Part 2 of a three-parter story, if you haven’t read the first one I invite you to check it out here.

I am listing reasons why I quit all Facebook-owned apps last July, the last article talked about privacy issues with Facebook products. This article will focus more on Facebook’s political involvement.

For the challenging ultimate project of Ironhack’s UX/UI Design Bootcamp, I decided to design for a community that I didn’t know well. This is a concept app for Gender Transition Tracking.

Several screenshots of the app designs laid out, from the log in screen to the transition tracking and publishing process.

We often hear that Empathy is very valuable as a UX Designer. You have to learn about and empathize with situations or mindsets that aren’t your own, and this is what you need to use to design your solutions.

So, I wanted to take the opportunity of the final project at Ironhack’s UX/UI Design Bootcamp to learn about a community I didn’t know well and try to do my best to design for people whose needs were different from mine.

It was a great experience because all I could do was listen and put myself aside, I couldn’t assume anything…

Week#6 of the UX/UI Design at Ironhack got me to reprise my previous work and add some style to it.

What a weird feeling that is to go back to a project after a couple of weeks! Going back after some time away, made me realize the odd choices, the lack of hierarchy in fonts, inconsistent spacing…etc

The prototype definitely wasn’t as good as I remembered it. Sad face.

But no time to wallow in past mistakes: the UX part was done but the UI was still waiting. The good news is I was wiser than during the first phase.

Timeframe: 1 week

For Ironhack’s UX/UI Design Bootcamp’s third challenge, we had to imagine a new feature for an existing app.

And I chose to work on a Stream Sharing feature for Amazon Prime Video and I called it “Movie Night”. I think watching movies online is great, but it could be another tool to connect with our loved ones. Especially in 2020, watching the same movie or TV Show at the same time when you are separated, or far away, can be a special and intimate experience.

I decided to work on Amazon Prime Video because I thought this type of feature was a good fit. I feel like they would be more open to interactive watching experiences than other…

This is Week #3 of the UX/UI Design Ironhack’s Bootcamp, and the challenge this time was to create a tracking app. Will I survive this process on my own?

This week has been pretty intense, it was the first challenge we had to take on individually since the start of the Bootcamp, and the timeframe to deliver was reduced to one week.

The instructions were to create a Tracking App. Today there are plenty of apps that will track your workout routine, nutrition, weight, mood, sleep, habits…and so on. I decided to take it a little more literally and wanted to create a Friend Tracker at first, kind of like FindMyFriends. The idea then evolved into something different, with two specific goals: helping you make decisions in a group

For the first two weeks of our UX/UI Design Bootcamp at Ironhack Amsterdam, we had to work on an E-commerce project. The original guideline said, more precisely, a local E-commerce project.

The idea was that “local shops often suffer a decrease in their annual sales due to more and more adoption in online purchases through options like Amazon or eBay.” But due to the pandemic, this aspect had to be reconsidered. My partner in design, Matty Acton, was working from Spain and I was working from France. Visiting a local store and observing it was, unfortunately, not an option for us.

So our challenge was to focus more on helping a shop to improve their online presence and to be more competitive in the market.

For Ironhack’s last challenge of prework, I had to conduct research to redesign a travel app. I had to choose the type of users and the specific app to study usability on, then use my findings to offer solutions.

The persona

The first step was to choose a user type. We had a bunch of user types to choose from and I chose the 60 to 80 year-old couple going on a trip to enjoy their retirement. The scenario was the following:

You and your partner want to visit one of the wonders now that you’re retired. Looking for a tour or…

For Ironhack’s July session’s prework I had to reverse engineer the wireframing from the app of my choice, as the second challenge. I chose to work on the Etsy mobile app for two main reasons: the first one being that I’m a regular user of this app so I felt like I had a good idea where I was going; second reason being that I like its simple design and wanted to explore its structure beyond the visuals.

What is Etsy

Etsy is a highly successful e-commerce website and app, focused on handmade or vintage items and craft supplies. Launched in New York…

As part of the prework for the July session of the UX Design bootcamp at Ironhack Amsterdam, I had to work on finding solutions to make buying and using public transport tickets easier through the app Citymapper.

What is Citymapper ?

Citymapper is a public transport and mapping service app that was created in London by Azmat Yusuf, former Google employee, in the year 2011. Citymapper uses “open” data and realtime traffic info, since its creation it has become a must-download if you want to move around London but also now 41 other cities like Paris, New York, Singapore or Milan. …
