Hango is a music festival-goers dream app. It enhances the festival experience and simplifies all of the important nuances for your festival group. I Co-Founded Hango in 2014 and have been involved with every aspect of the business from design to business strategy.
Creating the MVP
When building the MVP for Hango, there were three main pain points we were trying to solve. Simplified group chatting for an event, finding your friends in a crowd and sharing photos and videos for each music festival. With that criteria, we built out the user stories and started with a low fidelity wireframe.
Designing for Festival-Goers
When building the UI, our focus was simplicity. Festival-goers are tech savvy, young adults who attend music festivals to get away from everyday life. The festival experience is everything so our app had to embody that experience before, during and after the festival.
Simplifying the User Flow
After a clean UI was created, we wanted to simplify the app down to its core functionality and create a final user flow. These were the final high-fidelity wireframes created for version 1.0 of Hango.
Creating a Simple Tutorial
Building a simple tutorial for the intro and slide in menu was crucial for new users. The design below shows how the MVP and simple design turned into a easy to use app that music festival-goers will love.
