Flip-Gift, A Student Project

  1. 1. Flip-Gift GIFT GIVING MADE EASY Sunday, November 24, 2013 Design by: Taylor Glas-Hochstettler Student Project. General Assembly UXDI Winter 2013
  2. 2. About Flip-Gift: Flip-Gift is a mobile shopping app for Lissa who enjoys giving gifts but, as we all do, sometimes needs a bit of help with ideas. It suggests appropriate gifts, allows her to either “like” or “leave” a gift as well as giving her the option of purchasing a gift directly from the app. Flip-Gift records user input too, learning the more she uses it. Unlike shopping at a traditional mall or browsing multiple apps and websites, Flip-Gift brings the possibilities directly to you. About the Project: Flip-Gift is a brand new Bay Area based start-up. The Flip-Gift team is looking to create an easier way to connect merchants with customers over a mobile based channel, while making for an intuitive, simple and enjoyable shopping experience.

  4. 4. Case Study Sunday, November 24, 2013
  5. 5. DESIGN RESEARCH Method: We spoke one-on-one with Lissa to figure out how to best serve her needs. Findings: LE P AM S We found out Lissa really love to do internet research in her spare time, but that she sometimes she just wants suggestions for gifts without having to dig around Opportunities Identified: Create an easy way to expose people to as many interesting and relevant gift ideas as comfortable. We identified three types of potential users for this product: 1). Holiday gift shoppers 2). People shopping for themselves 3). Merchants looking to sell their wares Sunday, November 24, 2013
