Project Description

A mobile application to alert you when you are near your favorite places.

Search for or discover places on Whim and save them to a list. The next time your phone detects that you are near that place you will get an alert.

This project started from a personal need but through some light research I found that others could greatly benefit from it as well.

I created and illustrated three personas, and outlined ideal-state scenarios. To begin my exploration of the supporting interface to these scenarios, I prioritized a single scenario to design for. All sketches and wireframes were designed to accommodate the "Staycation" scenario with considerations taken for other scenarios and personas.
