A location-sharing app that focuses on getting people physically in to the same place as effortlessly as possible. Key metrics for success are time spent socialising off-app and not time spent in-app.

The Heart of the Experience

Customers received physical stickers for every in-store purchase and daily free sticker packages inside the app. Those stickers could then be traded through the app.


Simple Navigation

Ping consists of your friends, places that you have received from friends or curators and maps which you exclusively receive from curators. To move from one screen to the other you can swipe or tap.


Sending Places to Friends

Proposing to meet-up is as simple as selecting a place on the map and sending it off to a friend. All you can do is attach a note to the request such as “meet me there at 4pm!” – old school, no back and forth.


The Foundation of Experience

Homestory should become an interior design platform for inspiration as well as for users to create 3D models of their rooms, decorate them and share them with the community. Users can then remix someone else's room in 3D-mode as well as give feedback in written form.


Only for presentation purposes. Complete style guide can be provided on request.

Welcome and Introductory Walkthrough

Wow, you made it all the way down here! Here are some welcome and walkthrough screens which I had a fun time putting together.


Web Views for Influencers

Influencers and Magazines get access to a web view that allows them to publish maps and locations to their followers. 


Why I worked on this

Bennet's, CEO of Ping, vision to create an experience that focuses on bringing people together physically and away from their phones resonated a lot with me.
