Iterating To Hi-fi Mockups
How do we create a remarkable experience?
We struggled to work out all of the possible problems that could be created by a P2P messenger.
Obviously, Kanye would be subject to a lot of spam. We brainstormed possible solutions to these issues, for example, a suggestions system that works differently based on your popularity (locale, fame, genre all weighted accordingly).
A lot of deliberation and feedback was required to fine-tune the exact way the requests system would work. There were a lot of user scenarios to take into account, like how to reverse an accidental rejection.
Also, we decided on a few other functions that would be ideal to integrate into the messenger based on the insights we gained about the early stages collaboration: video chat, the ability to send sound files that could be played in the thread, and a few other tools.
There was a lot of discourse and review before we nailed down the details and had mockups that could be implemented.
Eventually, we got there.
