What worked:

This was the first time creating a hypothetical app for an existing brand, which I really enjoyed because it gave me parameters to design within, while also allowing for flexibility in brand tone and opportunity for reach. Further, my partner and I worked on this project remotely, which acquainted us with online collaboration. This project presented a lot of firsts, which inevitably produced challenges but ultimately helped me learn further about collaboration tools, sketch plug-ins and micro interaction applications.

Pain points:

Perhaps the biggest pain point was dealing with technological blips (unsurprisingly). My partner and I were working on different OS systems, and syncing our libraries and documents was a big roadblock.  We managed to figure it out in the end, by screen sharing and updating each other routinely. Nonetheless, it was a pretty painful process.
