Using HiHello, people can easily exchange contact information, and then manage their contacts by relationship. Users can create different HiHello cards for the different types of people they meet.
For example, I can have a Work card with my HiHello email and LinkedIn to give to some people, but also have a Personal card with my personal email and phone number to give to others.
What I Learned
Designing a feature from idea to implementation within the constraints of a startup
Partnering successfully with engineers to convey designs and understand needs, as well as catch and address implementation issues early
Working with our product and growth to balance company goals with UX
Understanding and applying both iOS and Android mobile design patterns
Our card list design changed quite a bit during my time at HiHello. Design changes were influenced by the prioritization of growth, usability, and engineering limitations, among other things.
HiHello handles contacts a bit differently than other apps because of the nature of how contacts are created. When a HiHello user shares a card with someone, they have the option to receive information back. This creates a contact.
Contacts can be viewed based on when you met, what card was given, and more.
