However, before we get ahead of ourselves, we need a team, and that has been the focus of our efforts this past week.
As you know from any task, the team you need varies depending on your own skills, your objective (e.g., your product or service) and who you are achieving it for (your customers, even if it is just yourself).
To effectively foster the story-telling experience between children (who cannot read) and adult users (some of whom may be a bit technology-shy), it is essential that EpicGem provides a simple, intuitive interface with a clear step-by-step process for building stories. Accordingly, user experience and user interface design are essential to EpicGem's effectiveness and eventual success.
With that in view, I have been scouring sites specializing in connecting designers with projects (such as behance, dribbble and 99designs), while leveraging the incredible experience of the FI mentors available to us here in Hong Kong. At the moment, we have reached out to 18 designers (from Argentina to Sweden) looking for the right experience in designing applications accessible to both adults and children alike and have initial interviews scheduled to start next week.
