A new vision app for tech freelancers

client work - 2019-2020

Comet is a platform that allow companies to work with a community of talented tech and data freelancers.

Role : Freelance Product Designer with a focus on User Experience Design

Period : November 2019 - February 2020

As a young company in search of its “product-market fit” Comet has always been very iterative and experiment-driven. Over time, on the Product and Design side, this resulted in a lake of cohesion and consistency in the user experience we offered to our freelancers. Some changes in the strategy of the company and the arrival of a new Head of Product offered a good opportunity to redesign the user experience of the whole application.

Challenge

Working on the user experience of a whole application at once instead of working from one problem / solution to another was really challenging.

We iterated on a lot of different product topics and gathered all our solutions in a prototype of the vision of the app that is used as a visual representation of the coming user experience for the product roadmap.

Main lesson learned

You can't build a great user experience without a strong and clear work on product principles first.
