As design lead, I was tasked with redesigning the most used page in the Foursquare City Guide app, place pages.
We uncovered this unmet need where users wanted to better understand the full experience of a place. We focused heavily on the “evaluation stage”, where users were analyzing and deciding if a place actually satisfied what they were looking for. We elevated features such as tagged photos to give users a quick look at the most popular food tastes at the venue, interior and exterior photos, popular tips and feedback from users and a quick bulleted list of what the venue had to offer
Foursquare is a local search and discovery mobile service, providing the best places to eat, drink, shop or visit - in any city in the world! By taking into account all the places a user goes, the things they have told us that they enjoy and the other users whose advice they trust, Foursquare provides tailored recommendations personalized for every unique user.
My efforts focus primarily on defining the best approach of bringing innovative and efficient solutions to change and inspire the way users view the world around them.
The approach to this collateral rebrand was to evolve the current branding and create a fresh and coherent visual template for the brand.The starting challenge was to use the existing logo. The result was a new cohesive brand direction that was rolled out across internal and external marketing communications, acting as a visual voice for the company.
Digital collateral components such as a responsive website experience have also been redesigned and should be live in the near future.
