The Plum Guide

‘The Plum Guide Test’ App Redesign

This project involved a redesign of The Plum Guide Test, which is iPad app utilised by a Plum Guide ‘Home Critic’ to interview hosts and assess homes by interacting onsite via a very intensive survey.

The project needed to be very UX focused, with a need to create a User Interface that's both beautiful yet very functional, efficient and ergonomic, while aligning to strict brand guidelines. It was very important to introducing a visually impressive way of presentation of the testing documentation for investors and collaborators.

For this role, there was a necessity to have an obsession with detail, efficiency and UI, to create a super slick version user experience.
