Our goal was to take Venmo’s existing platform and make it more logical. We wanted to make the landing page more user friendly and introduce a function to split a bill. But before stepping foot in Figma, we created some paper wireframes.
After creating and running through our paper prototypes, we recreated them on Figma as medium-fi wireframes. We played around with the landing page layout and how to best display the notifications before moving on to user testing.
We tested our medium-fi wireframes on regular Venmo users so they would be familiar with the current app and since they were also our target user group. Their feedback was overwhelmingly positive though there were some small bugs we still needed to sort out.
After multiple rounds of prototyping and feedback from test users, we created a rounded final product. It looks similar to Venmo because we wanted to maintain its current aesthetics but aimed to make the interface more user friendly.
