THE CHALLENGE

SQWAD

 Word on the Curb is a production house and marketing research agency that help brands reach out to minority communities. They hired Radically Digital to do a full discovery to design a platform that gathers market research on products from real users. A mobile app that gathered the user feedback and a responsive platform where the feedback was available were required to be designed.

THE APPROACH

Discovery

1.
Research

During the first week of discovery we deep dived into research, aiming to get a full understanding of who the target user is, SQWAD's business model and understand  the competitor landscape. 

2.
Design and Prototype 

As a team we did initial sketches, and then focused on developing these into wireframes using Balsamiq and final screen designs using Figma. The final screens were turned into a clickable prototype.

3 .
Next Steps 

The assets we produced created a strong vision for the next evolution of the business - productising their know-how and service they have been offering for years.

Value Proposition

We looked at what value does the business provide to its customers in terms of their pains, gains and jobs. We then considered these from the client’s perspective and how they could potentially utilise them.
