Core Features & Design Concepts

My planning for HadCoffee had become slightly derailed by thinking too much about little technical and design issues that may be relevant far into the future.

I’ve refocused on what I can reasonably build for a side project MVP without worrying about down-the-road issues too much. I do still need to keep one eye on development feasibility though, as I don’t want to back myself into a corner too early that stops me from releasing the thing.

Core Features

  • Logging coffees at cafes
  • Seeing where you’ve been & how much you drink
  • Finding speciality coffee in your area

Design Concepts

I was creating wireframe design for prototyping, but couldn’t help myself with a bit of high fidelity look & feel experimentation. I may end up going directly from screen sketches to a hi-fi prototype although there’s a risk that I’ll have wasted design time on interfaces that don’t get build.

It could be smart to halt the hi-fi work and leave that as an example to myself while I finish screens at low fidelity to test a prototype with some potential users.
