The Idea behind northstar

More and more people decide to go traveling for a longer period of time, especially younger generations after they finish school or uni to take a gap year. But there has been a change in the tech and media industry. First, in-house employees decided to become freelancers, now there are people called Digital Nomads. They combine their work life with traveling around the globe, either being freelancers or working remotely.

I found several websites on which you could find information about certain places, flights, accomodations and some communities. This made me think why there wasn't one place for this entire data base. So I created northstar, it's a concept for a travel networking app with everything you need, route planning, location tips, co-working spaces, networking, etc. It was a very fun project to work on, giving myself no boundaries or limits.

The logo is a wordmark that was created with the font Inter. At the top right, you can see the Icon that visualized the northstar. I decided to go very clean and minimal as the app itself has so much content and is filled with images and visuals from the community and several data bases.

App Design

The first screen the user will see after completing the questionnaire is the discover page. The next flight and acess to the travel route are shown as well as different structured information around destinations, packing tips, gadgets and gears etc. There are also recommended groups based on the questionnaire. By clicking on any card, a detailed page will open filled with content either produced by the community or taken from several data bases.

Anything that can be found on the discover page can be added to the personal dashboard. The dashboard is filled with a currency converter, daily appointments, self set timezones and all the other content the user wishes to have on there from the discover page.

Onboarding

After Signing up for the first time, the user will have to answer a series of questions in order to give the most useful information when later using the app. Questions about e.g Nationality will for example help for knowing when a visa is needed for which country.

Account

The account is seperated into four different sections. An overview over posts that were created, commented on or tagged in, groups that the user is a part of, information about the location the user is currently at and saved content.
