I prefer to split the design process into 3 levels: (1) sketching at the beginning and then discuss it with the team, (2) wireframing, testing usability and creating UI library, (3) final visual design.

Dynamic Filters

My favorite feature which does filtering by using dynamic selection: all filters are depend on each other and display results according to user's selection. It is easy to find any transaction by hashtags, users, currency and so on.

The alpha version was successfully designed, developed and launched in the App Store. The user-to-customer conversion rate is almost 10%. The next big step is to launch an Android version.

It was one the most interesting projects and I'm glad I helped to build it. Additionally to UX/UI tasks, this time I was also busy with Business Requirements, Market Research and Marketing materials.
