The Solution and Redesign
When I join Happy5, they already have the app, but it needs to be redesigned, especially the navigation section. The issue mainly came from the navigation side, so my primary task was redesigning the navigation and the experience affected by it, with some tweaks here and there on the icon section. The navigation still using hamburger icon/drawer, hiding some excellent features that Happy5 has. So we start with the navigation first.
With the limitation from each platform, we prioritize the navigation into 5 for the bottom part. These 5 primary navigations are:
- Timeline (Home)
- Content Creation (post something like photo, thoughts, polling, etc)
- Group List
- More (settings and other access)
We also put some access on the top navigation, inside the header:
- Search (post/coworkers/tags)
Then, on ”Share Feeling” features, we redesign the flow as well as the visual part of the feeling itself.
Unfortunately, I don’t have the document anymore other than what presented above, because my MacBook just got stolen, along with 2TB of external HDD, so I cannot present any other detailed interface and experience. And if you see the current visual design of the Happy5 app, mostly are changed, but most parts remain there.
