GIGM.com was designed with the intention to change the transport system approach in Nigeria and make it very easy for users to book for trips online. We addressed user's problems like booking at their comfort without going to the bus terminals, getting first-hand updates of the route/time schedules, offering incentives for loyal users, offering pickup services for users that find it difficult to commute to the bus terminal on departure day and finally offering easy bus hire services.
The UX design team came up with lots of hypotheses on likely solutions for these problems with the help of gathering Qualitative data from our existing users. We asked about the user's everyday routine of traveling, their challenges and how they think it can get better. These data helped us design prototypes which were tested and we eventually got our solutions.
Our outcome included the following: Discounted Fare options, Easy-to-use booking widget, Clear Trip details, necessary news notification, Users travel history and Easy-to-use payment platforms.

The official mobile application of GIGM.com.

I am a User Experience & User-interface Designer. I design products thinking about how the users will experience these products. I pay constant attention to the needs of my users. My design process is identifying the problem, identify who is affected by this problem, brainstorm lots of possible ideas (including unrealistic ones; it sometimes helps to think insanely), prototype these ideas and test with the users which ideas work or not. It's my thing to always design applications that are user-friendly and saves the user about 30% of their time. Here, I wrote an article about how to help our users save 30% of their time on our applications. I talk about the importance of planning out a project even before writing a line of code. Over time, working with great teams has made me know the importance of good User research work. Thinking like the user, asking precise questions the user might have in mind and trying to answer these questions via consistent design. And yes about consistency, I prefer designing components from the beginning as against designing a whole inconsistent layout page.
Im so grateful for all I've learned in the tech community and that's why I try to give back in my own way. I develop web theme a few times and share them for free. You can find one of my HTML free theme here.
