Design Loops #2
A snapshot into a new project, some links from the web, a quote, and a photo from my camera roll.
*I drafted this back in Spring 2021 and never got round to publishing. Thought I’d share anyway as I liked the contents. More consistency in 2022 fingers crossed!*
I hope you are well. Sticking with the last email format, we've got some links, a snapshot of what I'm working on, a quote, and a photo. Enjoy!
Snapshot of what I'm working on
Me and the guys at Metrik have decided to take a little break in client projects to pursue some pet projects together. The first of these is VenueScan — a product concept to help venues transition to contactless. After some pretty dire experiences of ordering a drink in a club with poor WiFi (in between lockdown one and two), and general dissatisfaction with how QR codes have been implemented during their recent spike in use, we're having a go at our first SaaS.
We're using linktree as quite a heavy reference, only aiming for a less fragmented and customisable experience, allowing for links, files, and text to be plugged in and to be displayed on the dashboard to punters. Drinks ordering is a bit further in the roadmap.
Here's a snapshot of a logo and v0.1 interface I had a go at yesterday.

Netflix Product Designer | Navin Iyengar | Design Like a Scientist – a really good watch on Netflix's approach to product design. At a high level it is as simple as how we are taught science in school: hypothesis, experiment, analyse.
