For many SME owners, moving money across borders is a chore fraught with many frictions. Manual paperwork, high fees and unfavorable exchange rates, just to name a few. The client’s mission is to provide better cross-border payments for smaller players who aren’t adequately serviced by large banks.
The client a Singapore-based financial technology startup. Invested by prominent regional VCs, they are building an innovative blockchain-enabled platform to settle cross-border payments that could scale massively for small businesses.
I was hired to design their first mobile wallet app. With a very tight timeline to launch the app for a test market, I worked closely with the founders and engineering team to roll out an MVP in just 1 month.
Starting with conceptualizing the app vision with the team, I went on to architect the app flow and wireframe the solution. My role ended at key screen high fidelity UI design that went on to become a live app on Appstore. Read the full story below.
CLIENT: FinTech startup (confidential)
MY ROLE: User Experience Design App Flow Architecture Wireframing Prototyping Interaction Design App Interface Design
TIMELINE: 4 Weeks
Stage 1–Define the Solution
Product Requirement Document (PRD)
Stage 2–Wireframing the Solution
Stage 1 prepared us with the necessary context and data to start conceptualizing the visual solution. From user flow diagram to key screen wireframes, I worked with the team to progressively add more fidelity to the design prototype.
Key screen wireframes
Stage 3–Develop the Visual Identity
With detailed wireframes from Stage 2, I only needed to create a few key UI designs in high fidelity for the development team to start implementing.
To make sure that color and typographical hierarchy work together to communicate clearly, I started designing in greyscale. Once I have achieved satisfactory visual hierarchy with a monochromatic color scheme, I started applying colors.
From greyscale to color without losing clear visual hierarchy
The app is now live on the Appstore. It’s currently only available to use for enterprise users to test it out. Due to NDA agreement with my client, I cannot publish the app name in this case study.
