Manfred App Design, 2019

Manfred is a premium taxi service. Through it one can order a Maybach with a formidable bodyguard and an interpreter, a Lamborghini, or even a private jet. I helped improve the current interface and designed some new features.

1. Multiple Cars Order

After ordering the first car, the customer can order another car, and one more, and more, and more

The orders are designed to be completely independent of each other.

The +Add Car button is made bright enough to draw attention without breaking the main order flow. After adding a car, user can quickly move between orders in a habitual left-right swivel.

2. A Separate Order of a Bodyguard or an Interpreter

One can order a bodyguard or interpreter without ordering a taxi

The feature being a hypothesis, the process of order is designed to be cheap in implementation: the customer simply leaves a request, and the operator calls back to complete the agreement in a private conversation.

3. Sports Car Order

To order a sports car, the customer can rely on both the required dates and a specific car — the interface works both ways

The client can order a sports car which a Manfred employee will tailor right to the client’s address. The sports car is ordered for certain dates, so the client either indicates the desired dates in the calendar, or selects the desired car and then selects the desired dates in the calendar.

4. Chat Bot for Document Processing

For the first order of a sports car, the application will ask the customer to send some documents: passport, rights, etc.:

Sending documents for a security check is an unpleasant procedure. The chat-bot reduces the negative side of it and makes it a calm process

The complexity of the process was that the client did not want to send anything, and Manfred wanted to see as many documents as possible to make sure the client’s reliability. In addition, the sports cars are in the possession of Manfred’s partners, who also check the documents. For the design of the chat booth, I analyzed the business processes of all parties to the transaction to find the most profitable and easy way to pass the sports car to the client.

Chat Bot will neatly and politely ask the client to agree to the terms or send the required document

I also wrote all the necessary dialogue scripts for the bot, depending on the situation:

All the design was presented as a screen map, so the transitions between screens and the underlying logic could be obvious:

The features were based on the intial app design and current business needs.

Video lessons for beginners in the MelodiQ app, 2019:

How to hold a guitar
How to play strings
How to play frets
How to use tuner

For each lesson, I made a research, found all the theory, created the script, translated everything to English, ordered the voiceover, shot the video, and made the editing.

Guitarist in the videos is Alexey Savenko.

The app helps to learn and play guitar with fun — it shows how to play a song, and provides real-time feedback on how you play.

Design of Tonebridge for macOS, 2017:

“Honestly: this is a very cool app. Fast to load, easy to use, and quick to just get a tone for someone who just wants to play and doesn’t care about twiddling knobs for 30 minutes before they start to practice, or just play for fun. Pressing Space to play the sample is an excellent feature. […] I wish you much luck with this!”

The app also got featured by Apple on the main page of Mac App Store:
