The Purpose of the Product

What problems will Allocate solve for users?
Allocate's purpose will be to serve as a companion tool for any designer as they navigate their career. Its features will be geared toward anyone who works in the design industry, regardless of their specific areas of focus. There are plenty of places to learn design skills online, but the design marketplace lacks a solid industry-specific tool for tracking progress on one's design skill sets. Allocate is inspired by the belief that, on a fundamental level, diversifying one's skill set makes them a more well-rounded creative professional.

Examining the Marketplace

The mobile app marketplaces of 2018 feature a plethora of productivity tools, but users often find themselves switching between different services. That's because most modern productivity apps try to serve as many users as possible, rather than focusing on serving one group very well. Allocate will be a tool made just for a unique subset of users—designers—and catering to their unique needs. After some review, I've identified two groups of users for whom Allocate will be most useful:

People Interested in Learning Design Skills
Allocate won't be for everyone with a smartphone. Instead, it will be focused on helping designers become better at what they do. However, it will also be built for anyone who has an interest in learning new design skills.

Early User Flow Chart

An early stage flow, evolving soon in a Sketch file near you.
This is a very early stage user flow for the app (click to enlarge). It will undoubtedly see many adjustments throughout the coming months, following testing and discussion with members of the design community. I'll continue to refine the UX moving forward, but this is a peek into some concepts that will help drive the experience.

Early Wireframes

Allocate is in the very early stages of development. Technically, it's not yet time for design. However, because I'm currently the only stakeholder, I've had some fun tinkering with early design concepts. I'm not sharing all the specifics of the app's intended functionality just yet, but these wireframes provide a peek into some of the surface plans. There's plenty more to come.
