As a product designer, I concepted and designed screens based on feedback from family and friends. All screens are my design.
My friend, Bailey, made a habit of going to every coffee shop in Chicago and leaving a review on the coffee and the vibe in order to share with her coffee-loving friends who do the same. Local is for her.
Local is a map-based review app where friends and communities get to collaborate by building out reviews and content for restaurants and venues in their city — filling in the map together. I researched and designed a collaborative platform to make sharing experiences and hidden gems easy.
I designed a modular platform based on location profiles pinned to a map experience. These location profiles can then be created collaboratively and maintained by the community with either personal or group profiles.
Sharing is a deeply human desire - share a good restaurant, a fun date idea, or good music. Local scratches this itch to share good things with specific groups of people.
