How we built it
Using Figma and a lot of deliberations. We went through each aspect of the business model and visualized how the app was gonna be until we finally made it.
Challenges we ran into
How should it be designed? Who are we targeting? Is this easy to use and understand?
We were thinking about the target users and the user experience in the app. We deliberate often before we came up with a clearer plan.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Having the idea fleshed out!
What we learned
That figma is pretty cool and we can do a lot with it!
What's next for ChicBook
Getting the code in with figma. And getting active users!
