Hitch Hiker: Mobile App
UX Design | Prototyping | Visual Design
The 4th Dubstech Protothon | UI/UX Hackathon
This mobile app concept was developed as part of UW Dubtech's fourth annual Protothon competition, UW’s only UX competition. Our team of two tested rapid prototyping and design thinking skills to develop a response that would encourage college students to explore the the Pacific Northwest. Hitch Hiker won third place out of twenty teams!
Our team started by researching pain points about University students around the University of Washington.
A large number want to go hiking, but do not have the transportation to get to there, which are typically around 1.5-2 hours away from the city.
We generated an application that would get younger people outside of the city of Seattle so they could experience the beautiful PNW and all it has to offer.
