Link incorporates your contact information as well as social network profiles into a single dynamic directory. From there, choose what you like to share when you meet new people. Link allows you to curate the way you exchange contact information and connect on social networks. Share everything, or share only what you'd like.
With users commonly being on more than one social network, it can be a tedious process to "link up" with someone you've just met. Usernames can be inconsistent, and going from app to app searching names is inefficient. Link users can share a generated link (or QR code, or through bluetooth "nearby") and opening the link will take a recipient to the Link web app or Link app, where they'll be able to view what are essentially hyperlinks to the social media profiles that the Link user sender chose to share.
The audience is anyone who actively networks, specifically young adults, young professionals, and people in the business field. Premium features will cater to more business oriented people, those who value social visibility and swift social action.
A couple playful conversations to help illustrate the social situations that Link would aim to solve.
For the first round of lofi's I focused on the two most crucial screens in the application. The Dashboard, and the Link preview screen. In sequence, these two screens make up the entirety of the Link creation interaction. It's crucial that the logical flow between the initial and preview is visible and apparent.
First Round Hi-Fi
Because of the importance I'm putting on a singular feature and function in the application, I'd really like most of the visual design to melt away in affordance and simplicity. This quick first round of design comps helped me feel out a visual style and explore layout option, especially for the card preview. Following comments from initial lo-fi evalulations, the first screen options have more of a button affordance and the following "ways to share"options have helper sub-text to reduce reliance on icons.
