Yowpla is a weekend planner.
The problem this app tries to solve is the one most busy individuals and families face every weekend: how to make the best of the coveted free time every week?
I conducted semi-formal interview sessions, the aim being to
understand how people plan for and spend weekends. This exploratory study suggested that apart from their interests, people watch out for:
- weather, - discounts and - travel
In designing for the visuals, my goal was to evoke a sense of relaxation. To emphasize the idea of weekend through design, I used rejuvenating colors and a friendly vibe.
The site is structured to indicate the "anticipatory" and "fun" aspects of weekend.
I care about strategic vision and obsess over details. I think about the why and marvel at the unknown.
Working on digital experiences since 2004, I provide all aspects of product and user experience design. I have worked for—Barnes and Noble, Apple, Yahoo!, MijnAlbum. Currently, I am a lead designer in Juniper Networks.
I have been published in A List Apart and UX Booth. My favorite pastimes include walks in woods, diy projects and kathak.
