We were inspired by real life experiences with similar youths who share similar passion and talents but were affected by war. Each one of those young people had an idea, a dream and a future plan to aim for. to this end, each one of us has to give back something to deprived.
What it does
Echoes brings in talented but limited Syrian youths together along with other professionals in one place to benefit from common skills and find creative solutions to problems they may know have the answer for but not the abilities.
How we built it
We started by thronging ideas on sticky notes, then we collected these ideas, created a storyboard, by coming up with scenarios for characters that could be in crises areas. later on we started designing the screens together using Sketch and sharing assets with our developer using Zeplin. We have developed using Xcode to come up with our prototype.
Challenges we ran into
A slow or no internet connection. we lost almost 3 hours looking for a good connection in Istanbul around the hotel.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The user experience, nice UI, the team work and how we managed to work on the product three of us coming from different backgrounds.
What we learned
Team work really works
What's next for ECHOES
Adding more functions and developing the collaboration tools, and create APIs to add success stories or finished projects from different platforms e.g. Youtube, Vimeo, Soundcloud
