Digital companion experience
for Lonely Planet

In 2016 I went to New York and while I was there I did an Interaction Design Course at School of Visual Arts NYC. In which, through a series of hands-on, studio-based exercises, I gained experience in critical parts of the design process while learning specific methods for human-centered concept exploration. The course culminated in a final project that incorporated the major principles of Interaction Design.

The Brief
Lonely Planet was looking for some top-level ideas for a digital companion piece to their Lonely Planet books and their website. They wanted it to fit nicely into their eco-system (book, apps, and website) and wanted it to be used pre, during and post travel.

Solution
Start building a community of young travelers and introduce them to Lonely Planet by helping them connect easily. 
Find other nearby lonely travelers in the moment, via gps in centralize map view.
• Filter the results through filters.
• Chat feature to connect with travelers.
• Profile customization and Instagram feed import
