About the project

THE PRODUCT

Finding the perfect gift is tough. Comicable offers a unique gifting experience with commissioned comics. You can define the characters, the story, and the style to make a highly personalized and memorable gift for the comic lovers in your life.

As the UX/UI designer, you will create a responsive web app to give users a highly intuitive experience to find a comic artist and commission a custom comic. You'll need to think through the users' needs and help them get the right comic made.

GETTING THE RIGHT DETAILS

Getting the right details - style, story, characters, etc. - can make all the difference between an unforgettable gift and a lackluster one. Designing with the user in mind and creating flows that enable the user to connect with the right artist, exchange information, and verify the comics are essential to ensuring a delightful gift experience.

HOW IT WORKS

We'll send you the detailed requirements and context when you start work on the project. You'll have 30 days from your start date to submit your work. You're welcome to submit at any time before your final due date.

Once you submit a design, a panel of 2-3 industry design experts will rate your work based on beginner hiring standards. You'll recieve detailed design feedback to help you improve and your hirability score and project work can be displayed on your portfolio. Learn more about how projects and scoring work.

What you’ll work on

You'll be tasked with designing the major flows for Comicable's core features at medium and high fidelities. Your designs should convey a brand identity that's fun, quirkly, and unique. This project gives you the opportunity to work on artistic e-commerce platforms like Etsy and 99designs. Use your UX/UI skills to design a memorable commission experience.

This project will require beginner UX/UI skills. You will need to understand the very basics of UX and UI design, and be able to mimic common patterns.

What you’ll get

Once you submit your design, you'll receive an assessment from a panel of 2-3 professional designers. The assessment includes a hirability score and a compiled critique from your assigned expert panel to help you improve. The assessment panel is choosen by Onfielder and is vetted for strong operating experience and previous hiring participation at tech companies.

You will be assigned a design mentor who will guide you through the process, shepherd the review, and help you interpret your assessment package, as well as provide suggestions and career advice.

DELIVERABLES

Requirements, artifacts, and expectations

EXPERT PANEL EXPECTATIONS

An Onfielder hirability score is an assessment of true industry excellence. By default, the hirability score is scaled for entry-level designers: we do not expect submissions to be the quality of an industry expert designer.

Our expert panel will assess you as if you were interviewing at their organizations for an entry-level position: so think of this presentation as a case study that you might include in your portfolio.

EXPECTED DELIVERABLES

Once you start a project, you'll receive a packet of product requirements, context, and expected design deliverables.

The main deliverable is a presentation deck that you will use to summarize your process, thinking, designs, and outcomes. This presentation should communicate everything your expert panel needs to know to give you an accurate hirability score. You can link to more details or other design artifacts within your presentation.

SCORING CRITERIA

Your expert panel will be looking for a demonstration of strong design thinking, UX design, UI design, and product thinking using the Design Standards in their assessments.

The ability to demonstrate design thinking and to explore many ideas and narrow down to one solution

The ability to demonstrate user-centered design, information architecture, wireframing, and interaction design
