The challenge

Crowdpac was originally conceived of as a political crowdfunding platform but sought to branch out into a social network.

When developing the platform, we had to consider various factors, including robustness, ease of use, and technology to be used. It was also important to understand the legal and cybersecurity implications of politics. The success of the project relied on careful planning and resource allocation.

Our Solution

We used the latest and greatest tech and a professional process to convert and all the crowdfunding features and merge them into a political social network.

Imajine used cutting edge technologies such as React Native, Next.js, Laravel / PHP to improve the interactivity of the website and create a more responsive user interface. In addition, it optimized the website’s code and database to improve load times and reduce latency.

Design process

By taking a user-centered approach, we conducted extensive research to understand our audience’s needs.

1. Find the right user and make it easy for them

We pay attention to the current user on the platform to define their demographics

To create a more intuitive platform, we needed extensive user information. By observing user behavior in the current environment, we gained insights. Analyzing posts with high interactions and user demographics helped define user personas. With this data, we structured the information architecture and user flow effectively for the design process.

2. Translate the UX Research into visual elements​

The visual elements are the main reusable components and styles used throughout the software system. ​

In this case the visual elements and branding were already created, but according to the UX results we improved the communication system, creating and defying a better hierarchy of elements and guidelines about how to use every style according the case.

Visual Design

With user insights in mind, we developed wireframes and prototypes that went through iterations to refine the userflow and improve the platform’s architecture. We kept the Crowdpac branding and identity in mind to create an aesthetically pleasing visual design that reinforced the product’s purpose.
