"Wearing ID cards is the best thing ever", said no one ever. And neither has it been fun to learn the best way to hand-over a visiting card. 

Since quite some time, there has been multiple 'scan-your-visiting-card' apps existing but nothing could really replace the physical cards. People have been trying to make fancy visiting cards though but that came at a cost.

And what if you can carry your ID card without having to wear it all the time. And what if there's a single solution for these both?

Thus emerged the concept of the virtual cards -


Your card will be your home screen and you can click on it to flip it. On the back, you will have the office details just like how the ID cards do. And once you want to send the card to someone, it will send only the details that you want to.   


The cards that you have received will be stored under "Saved cards" and you will be able to add tags share and delete them. 

The "Locker" is be a safe place for you to store your super-important numbers.


Swiping up will provide a few options like delete, edit, and share; of which share is kept at a very reachable spot because sharing visiting cards will supposedly be the most frequently used option.

By allowing offline sharing this app is sure to add value in conferences.

And by adding multiple layouts and colors, this will be fun to use and personalize for meetups.

Here are some more screens of "Saved cards", grid and list views and the options view for them both.


This concept if done right can do many things than just replacing your visiting card holder or being your ID card. The social element in this app can drive many things and since this will always keep your workplace and/or your identity connected, in an ideal world, the trust factor will be something that might not be an obstacle, especially to an Indian audience.

This was a design exercise that was assigned to me, and whatever I did in around 2 hours did get me the job.

The fundamentals of this app was simple. The users that get on it are either learners or teachers or both. They can offer to teach something or just discover something to learn; call it social learning + teaching.


                              

The solid colors are something that instill a sense of freshness and of being pumped up, because we need people to be ready to learn and teach.

Also, the card layout with swiping actions to navigate and dismiss was quite "in" and did solve the purpose of exploring the options that was based on location and/or interest.


There is a feeling to the unadulterated screens and keeping them from too many visual elements and movements. With the card occupying more than 50% of the screen and the bold catch lines / CTAs, there are only two things in the screens that you'll notice, and act on.

With single-motive apps like this, it also gets simpler to visualize the functions and flow of the app. It's precise, since the goal is clear and you don't have a lot to account for because it doesn't do a lot of things.

The time slot selection screen isn't the best yet, but it looked right a year ago.

There were also a few other hand-drawn wireframes that I haven't been able to find, but I think this small task always reminds me of the speed at which I can work and a good feeling of accomplishment because (duh) it got me the job.

The colors add to the fun and soon enough I am looking at designing an app with colors as solid as on this one.




Ever since I jumped into bank/payments related design from travel, I've been seeing the not-so-simple, not-so-beautiful bank apps of the numerous banks of India.

While in a vertical, as you're designing solutions for a product, you get to think so much about it that, at some point it urges you to think about solving something that has been running along for so long.

Bank apps and flows have been on my face for a while and minimal has always been a challenge while designing a product in India because it becomes very cluttered once the design expands. With monochrome and minimal I took a chance at creating a super-simple bank app (forgive the cringe at 'super'). I've also been trying to experiment with a button-less app.

Gestures

Gestures can be fascinating inclusions for bank apps. In another bank app design (very soon), I'm planning to push gestures to the limelight. But for now, swiping up to check the balance seemed like a good inclusion to check balance without having to log-in into the app.

   

A new number pad

I have been experimenting with a new, simpler, compact number pad, while working on this. 

More often, we tend to remember the pattern we type rather than the actual numbers. After looking at the numbers for a dozen times, it's more of the pattern that registers in the brain and sometimes it's simpler that way. Atleast for people who don't want to remember too many numbers, it is.

There is the grid layout and the linear layout for numbers that's used a lot today. Not having to switch to 2 views, the Gboard has got the numbers onto the linear layout on top now. Also, not to forget the bottom-up grid on the calculator.

So there's the 4x3 grid and the 1x10 linear, How about a 2x6 grid like this one? It's a separate numeric keyboard and it also half the size of the 4x3 grid.

     


'New' does come with a lot of challenges, but this was a fun experiment, and I intend to keep this numeric keypad for the rest of this app.

Well this is work in progress, so interaction gifs and other flows will be updated soon.
