Then we improved it. And again, and again... and honestly, when we have some free time, we're still working on it.
This is how I envision product design: you start super small, you ship it fast and gather users feedback,
and make it more beautiful, more useful, step by step.
In that case: when I want to make some tea, it's mostly because I want to have some relax time. Or like, taking some time. Keywords could be: comfort, soothing, warm.
So illustrations might be a good idea for this moment! Having some funny smiling characters, sort of a magical universe made sense.
We asked the services of an illustrator friend so he could bring his vision and super cute design for our app.
And... that was, well, super true.
So now, we're working on a tea database. Basically, users will just have to search the name of their teas, and add each one with a single tap into their collection.
That way, it's gonna be a time savior, and we avoid the uncool part of the product.
