UX & UI Designer in the UAE. I 💛 designing mobile, web & desktop application

Purpose / Scope

Current state

The current UI of the login was let’s say was bad. Upon auditing I figured out the following problems.

Introduction

The redesign was a part of an exciting workshop on documenting your design by Arsalan Iqbal — Product designer @careem. The meeting kickstarted with a quick introduction by each attendee. Then Arsalan took us on an informative ride about the why and how important it is for designers to document their experiences.

It’s because such companies invest a lot in research and development to nail the design on their products. But for people like us, especially individuals, may not have such luxuries to test at that massive user base. Well here comes the world of open source design :)
