V*****t (USA): Incorporating common hand gestures to a fashion outfit editor


Background:

V*****t is a high-fashion app based in New York City that enabled users to create outfits by combining different items from a variety of fashion brands. The app aimed to help users discover new fashion items and create personalized outfits that matched their unique style.





Challenge:

Creating an outfit editor interface that incorporates multiple gestures

As a product designer for V*****t, my primary challenge was designing an outfit editor interface that incorporated multiple gestures, such as zoom, pinch, rotate, and swipe. The interface had to be intuitive and user-friendly, enabling users to create outfits effortlessly.


Users expect mobile interfaces to be intuitive and easy to use, which means that we had to consider the most common gestures (zoom, swipe, pinch, rotate, etc.) that users employ when interacting with their mobile devices.

Solution:

To address this challenge, we conducted extensive research on user behavior, particularly when it comes to using mobile apps. Users expect mobile interfaces to be intuitive and easy to use, which means that we had to consider the most common gestures (zoom, swipe, pinch, rotate, etc.) that users employ when interacting with their mobile devices. We incorporated these common gestures into the design of the outfit editor interface, making it easy for users to add, remove, and modify items in their outfits. We also included other features, such as search and filtering, to make the outfit creation process as efficient as possible.


Results:

Our user-centered design approach, which prioritized the importance of understanding common gestures, resulted in an outfit editor interface that was intuitive and easy to use. In testing, users found the interface easy to navigate and enjoyed creating outfits with it. While the app hasn't been launched yet, we believe that the outfit editor interface will be a key selling point for the app. By enabling users to create outfits with ease and incorporating the most common gestures that users employ, we've created an interface that we believe will be well-received by users.


Conclusion:

Understanding common gestures is crucial for creating an intuitive and user-friendly interface. Users expect to interact with mobile apps using gestures that feel natural and easy to perform, and incorporating these gestures into the design of the app can greatly enhance the user experience. As a product designer, it's important to stay current with new gestures and interaction techniques that emerge, and to always consider the user's needs and preferences when designing interactions. Applying these principles can lead to a better user experience and ultimately drive the success of the product.
