At the start of August 2020, I participated in the annual HNG Internship which is a remote internship that is designed to find and develop the most talented software developers and designers across the world.
A task was given to create a futuristic app concept of our choice. This was to be delivered with 1 week on both design and development. I contacted my very good friend Chizo Nwazuor who is an excellent Front-End Engineer to see how we could brainstorm some ideas and bring to life. We had several ideas for an app but AnyVoice stood out among all of them, we loved the idea and we were really excited to see how it would turn out
An app for everyone
During our user research, we identified our main target audience as young people, basically, those between the ages of 10 - 25 years old, who are eager to know how other people sound like. Some personalities we looked out for are outgoing, good humour, fun, youthful, very open-minded, and a good spirit of adventure. This made us look towards having bright and vibrant colours for the design.
Putting the users first
Considering this was a concept design, it was important that I have a user-centred design approach on this project. I took time off to do some research based on target users and focus on their needs in each feature/stage of the app design.
The Information architecture is to show the navigational structure of the mobile app and how content will be and presented to a user when they are interacting with the design Organising and categorizing information allows users move through the mobile app effectively.

Launch of AnyVoice was a huge success, though it’s just a concept design. I received several positive feedback from a lot of people across different platforms such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Slack workspaces. I’m really proud of the work and how it turned out.
