Streaming music meets design.
This Wordpress based web application was designed with a combination of plug ins and coding. Wave is a music streaming system designed to be easy to use and trendy. The purpose of the website is to inform and offer a way to subscribe to the service.
Getting Into It.
Joining the Wave.
The concept of the company.
The main idea of Wave was to create a platform which offered unlimited streaming services similar to that of Spotify but also offered member benefits such as exclusive offers for concert tickets. Creating a community was the focus of this platform, having customers join a trend and gain exclusive experiences unique to Wave.
Making the system understandable.
A focus of this project was assuring that the process of signing up for this service was easy and understandable for all levels of internet users. Iconography was developed in order to visually represent the features of certain plans and aspects of the service. This allows users to quickly make decisions simply based on universal imagery.
Ease of Use.
Developing a straight forward system.
Paired with simple iconography is the systems ease of use. This meant that including buttons and links throughout was important to creating a flow within the website. The process from learning about the service to signing up for it was created using a pre-development flow chart and user testing to ensure its usability.
Tweaking the Design.
Using user testing to improve layout.
In order in to ensure that the website was usable, a user test was conducted among 5 participants of varying age and gender. They were asked to complete a series of tasks which would be common on the website. Each task was completed with 100% success rate except for one. This failed task created a need for a relocation of the FAQ to the about page, where most people looked for it first.
Putting it All Together.
The final website.
The final website was created with a combination of Wordpress and CSS coding before being linked with servers and published as a live website for a short period of time.
