shnit app

Since 2003, shnit has brought together more than 35.000 filmmakers and film lovers from all over the world. The short film festival was born in Bern. I had the privilege to participate in a couple of installments, and it’s really something else. Sadly, I cannot say the same about its app. So when I got the chance to do a case study on an open subject, it was a no-brainer. An overhaul of its dead app was on its way, and I was in charge of it.

The goal was to offer a smooth experience when planning and acquiring the items, as well as expanding the experience of the short film festival with current events and news.

A lot of research went into the development of this solution. It was easy to identify major pain points as it has been my own experience as well. Yet I tried to develop personas who were also different to me, to have a broad overview of the different costumer journey this app might be involved in.

As you can see, this is a work in progress. The locations of the event have yet to be integrated in the program overview. A map of the screening places has been created, but I’m still researching how to smoothly access to it, without impairing the flow. I hope to one day revisit this project.
