This was a group project for a class at Parsons. Our assignment was to develop a concept for either a website, web app, or native application. We chose to  design a mobile app about New York City buskers (street musicians). We wanted it to be useful for people interested in seeking out new, underground music, as well as useful for the artists themselves.

The core functionality was to aggregate listings of MTA-sanctioned buskers which included bios, photos, and the locations they played at. The app would allow users to add “favorites” to a personalized list. It would have robust search/filtering capabilities that would show artists by location, genre, or name.

I was responsible for doing the user experience design. I made these wireframes show the app architecture and basic layout:
