eamisly aims towards building a vibrant ecosystem of innovative services that cater to the entrepreneur and dream seekers from a holistic approach. There are several projects, under the umbrella of Seamisly, that are designed to address different aspects of a business. Seamisly is a design system around b2b and b2c.
Seamisly is built around the idea that creative entrepreneurs or small-to-medium business owners should be using a single platform to create complex tasks without having the need to jump from application to application to perform all the tasks they need to perform on a project basis.
Seamisly streamlines and automates your business experience from connecting with peers to a full client transaction. Seamisly understands the need to successfully build your brand, and it provides the essential tools for a smooth and happy transaction.
Seamisly is based on a two-sided model where business owners promote new projects, and contributors contribute to these projects to successfully execute a project together, as well as business owners manage a project, and clients collaborate to make this project a reality
Process Used to Find a Solution
Because I’m interested in finding a single solution where I’m able to simplify all of the various tasks I perform on a daily basis (or project basis) I’ve done extensive research around mobile apps or webapps that offer these types of solutions. If someone is working on a photography project and needs to connect with other creatives, these are a few of the apps is uses to complete the project from start to finish: Honeybook, Square app, Meetup, Freelancer, Craiglist, Teamwork, Yelp, and many more, just to name a few.
Honeybook and Wix - both of them are great tools, but don’t really cover everything that a business needs to do per project basis. Honeybook is responsible for agreement and receiving payments with little to non customization for the brand, if I wanted to allow the user/client to add different add-ons that I offer, Honeybook does not allow for that. Wix, is mostly around web development with a ton of different apps that they integrate with but there’s a fee for every app one integrates with, or the app is very limited. e.g. a booking app will be very limited to use unless one pays for a higher plan. All-in-all these webapps are great additional offerings to run a business, although not the most business friendly tools because they still don’t provide all of the needs of an entrepreneur, or small to medium business owner.
Starting off with a basic AI concept from research drawn on the whiteboard, I then moved to a sketch prototype to refine some of the elements I was looking for. It was important to take a look under the hood and start by defining the information architecture of Seamisly. This information architecture was necessary to get a handle on the volume and complexity of the content at first hand. Making navigation component choices based on looks alone can force you to change an ideal IA to something that doesn’t best serve the needs of users or accommodate your content.
This is a quick and cost-effective technique for identifying usability issues early in the design process. Catching major usability issues means we don't waste time, effort or money developing a design that may or may not fail. In the low fidelity prototypes illustrated below I've worked showcasing the first six design (or entry points) ofthe app.
The use-case of the app flow is to document the process of a user working through common tasks on the app. The arrows indicate the specific User Interface (UI) component where the user takes action and points to another screen in the prototype as a result of the interaction. e.g. If a user lands on the ‘oonboarding page, then what would happen next, what does the user need to do next, sign in, sign up, or how’s the overall flow of the user look like if we stand back and observe.
The Seamisly app uses google’s material design principles to provide the modern app user experience for patients on android phones. Some of GMD are:
