Local Guide - A Personal Design Project
Exploring new things and places is a passion of mine, so I wanted to conceptualize a travel guide. After interviewing multiple people about their travel planning goals and habits, it came to my attention that people want to find the off the beaten path attractions. Local Guide is my concept for a personalized travel app specifically for seeing a new city in the eyes of a local.
Give users a guide by onboarding - Straightforward steps and friendly design welcomes new users to the app.
Personalized experience - Not only can users share their top must-sees in a city, but their inputs are like a digital journal they can look back on to reminisce on their experiences.
Recommendations along with room to explore - The purpose of Local Guide is to help users have the best travel experience in a new city. Much of this would consist of giving recommendations based on activity in-app. It's equally important to have a tool where users can explore places and events that might not populate on their feed.
