Very early stage exploration. To explain the concept to some of our users, we went ahead and created a mock movie from featuring an inVision prototype.



The essence of this app is user's love and attachment to different kind of music. The logo is inspired from musical notation which is independent of any particular instrument or system.

Ticketpass was done in 2015 within a brief period of 3 weeks.

Problem and the Why

To understand the problem our user Stacey is facing, let's look at the problem scenario below. Click 'next' to move through the story.

As you saw in the above story, there is a need for a solution for Stacey which can help her save tickets and discover concerts around her. As a part of my exploration process, I took Livenation, Songkick and Bands in town into account and I found out that in addition to using third party integrations/dependabilities, these apps lacked a social component which makes them good for only intermittent use.

So, the overall goal of ticketpass was to fill that gap and introduce a couple of things: Discoverability towards concerts, social connections and sharing without leaving the app. I started with a vision of Ticketpass handling everything about concerts for the user.


Interesting quotes

"I get hungry with all the dancing. When I go to buy food, I end up in a line. Maybe this app could help me order ahead?"

"I use my email as a dump for all the tickets I have bought. Sometimes I put an event on my calendar so that I remember about the concert!"

"My friends usually create a Whatsapp or a iMessage group with everyone going to the concert. We plan ahead so that we're never bored!"

Identified tasks

Interaction flow


Card explorations

As a part of discovery and explorations, I tested three card interactions for the landing page for TicketPass

Full-width cards allow the user to view two concerts in a single view above the fold:

Cards as a list give a scroll friendly view which allows for a balanced full-width view with multiple cards above the fold:

Two-column grid allows for an evenly balanced grid with upto or more than four cards above the fold but creates a lot of visual noise on the screen:

Further action items and reflections

Within a brief a period of 3 weeks, I feel we made great progress with taking our concepts in front of users early. I can't bring out the developed concept in front of you at this point since we plan on picking this up again in the near future, but having said that the biggest highlights of this project was collaboration with a developer and welcoming his ideas into my brainstorming sessions. It is very interesting how developers are able to think of so many edge cases at once!

We couldn't complete this and bring it to life back then because of our work commitments. I have to admit that with time, we started questioning our approach, validity of our concept and whether it is going somewhere or not. We were moving so fast that I, as a designer, did not invest enough time in validating the problem and focusing on the value prop. I could have been more thorough with designing the experience now that I look back at the overall 3 weeks.

Nonetheless, it was a great learning experience and we hope to solve a deeper problem this time!
