Competitive & Comparative Analysis
"Jessica understands the meaning of form follows function. She has an eye for what a products true potential is, and skill for unleashing it." Dieter Rams Retired Designer
Let's start with a question…
Minimalism isn't about what you add to a project, it's about taking away what is unnecessary until you get to what matters. With this project we were able to showcase how many things can be designed with just a few materials, resulting in something truly usable.
MAKE MUSIC COMPOSITION
ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE
Motivation Behind the Scene
I adopted the gradient color patterns to envoke certain emotions and moods just like music does. Users can anticipate the rythm of the music from the color dynamics.
The crucial challenges of overturning conventional music streaming
platforms like Spotify
How to satisfy the needs when elders have specific preferences for traditional or classic music genres that may not be as readily available on some streaming services?
How to lower the threshold of music compositing?
How to ensure that the generated music sounds high-quality and professional?
How to ensure the generated music is unique and innovative?
Research Process 1
User Research Insights
Research Process 2
I synthesized the collected data from in-person interviews and competitive analysis into the below insights.
Tread 1: Audio Editing Workflow
A successful design should be inclusive and hierarchical, considering the needs and abilities of a diverse range of users. For example, we should provide both the audio templates and the adjustable variables to ensure the service meets the needs of all users.
The most important thing I have learned in the process of auditing Spotify's interaction logic is that we should design the site architecture and navigation system more flatly to reduce friction.
By reading Spotify's research and development log, I realized that the design of the entry point and the authentication section should be as concise as possible in order to improve user engagement. In the early steps, we shouldn't focus on setting up the preferences or going through other irrelevant procedures.
Tread 2: Elderlies Preference
Elderlies love traditional music and drama due to a range of reasons, including nostalgia, familiarity, and cultural connections.
The available music editing software may be too complex or difficult for elers to use effectively.
the communication needs of the elderly have often been overlooked.
Conceptualization and Low-fi sketching
After identifying the pain points and the overall workflow of the app, I began sketching out the details and hierarchies of the key features for Home, Music Composition, Library&Social. Sketching is a useful technique for organizing and conceptualizing ideas assisting me to effectively visualize and plan the rough outline of the design as a whole.
