I partnered with TransferX to create a solution for africans to receive and send money effortlessly from their phones.
The first approach is allowing africans in London transfer money to Uganda since it is very painful for these people send money back home due to the large paperwork they have to fill up and the large fees agents charge. After MVP, they’ll be moving to other countries in Africa, Europe and in the Latin American market.
When Windsor (TransferX founder and CEO) approached me, they already had an idea of how the app would work and there were wireframes in place. We started from there to define the flows, experience and interface of the app.
Although I took the leadership on this project, there were some constraints in terms of design. I had to maintain the the main structure of the app since it was already built by developers, therefore changing any major aspect would affect the whole development and delay MVP launch.
I came in and suggested a few changes and brought considerations they weren't having before that impacted the experience of the product. I was responsible for the entire user experience and interface of the product, including auditing what they already had, create a new user flow along with wireframes and prototype to test it to real users and potential investors.
