Research: 

Target Audience: American high school to college students aged 15-25 

Pain Points: 360° cams are novel for most kids, need more educational information to teach people how to use the cam; the cam software is slow and difficult to use; the camera is heavy; not many social platforms accept 360 files, so sharing is a challenge to other social platforms outside of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Core Value of Opix360: Easy to shoot: just attach Opix360 to charging port of smartphone and open the app; photo and video support; Easy to edit: inspired by Snapchat & Instagram, the interface resembles favorite apps of young users, making it intuitive to use. Easy to share for supported apps: after editing the photos or video, sharing is as easy as clicking a button inside the app; Users can share 360° photos or videos to social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook & Twitter.

Web UX Design and UI Direction

Goal:

With new product launches, it’s important to display the best features of the product on the landing page, so that users can instantly get a feel for the content that can be produced with the camera, while also translating the company’s branding from their app to a web format. The outcome of the design by Roy Ren is meant to resemble the app’s aesthetic and bring the immersive nature of 360° photo and video to users on the web. Additionally, the design captured the clean, and fun aesthetics that can be seen in other wildly popular websites for hardware products such as GoPro.
