Orzo Chat

A new way to chat
project

PROBLEM STATEMENT

We all have several chat apps installed on our smartphones and many are very similar to each other. Things can easily get lost in the thousands of messages across dozens of apps, and many of those messages contain valuable ideas and memories.

Is there a better way to play with these messages and store/organize them so they continue to inspire us? It's time to think outside of the box and invent a new way to chat with people on smartphones.

SOLUTON

We wanted to give our users more choices with their messages: sort them while you are chatting, move them around however you like, save them for later to remind you of some facts. The transformation of how you organize with your past chat messages can change the way we interact with each other!

Comparative Analysis

While doing competitive analysis research on other chat apps, I found that these apps are design to send messages quickly and easily. It doesn't have too many options for people who wants organized communication. So we want to design an app that give more options to user for different communication situations.

Storyboarding
