popspot is a mobile app project that we have worked on over the past three years. The UI/UX Design has gone through four iterations throughout project’s lifetime. Starting off as a self-funded startup MVP project, popspot has evolved through multiple user feedback-driven UI/UX Design overhauls. popspot obtained seed funding and continues to rapidly iterate its design and functionality to meet its user’s preferences and needs.

We have worked on this project’s UI/UX, as well as the technical development of the mobile application. With our understanding UI/UX Design, and the constraints a technical team is often faced with, we are able to deliver a design package that will be prepared and organized with technical developers in mind.

A heavy emphasis was put towards Content & Technical On-site SEO accompanied with many iterations of keyword research as the target buyer persona evolved throughout time.
