Overview

Milanoamodomio is an online website with a very special mission: to unveil the beauty of Milan through its most particulars (and often unknown) places and events.

The challenge

The first version of the website was mostly as a collection of POIs. For the new project, the client wanted to create a vivid community of people (before than simple users) willing to discover the city.

The solution

Considering the forthcoming EXPO 2015, the idea was to design a multi-channel experience (site, app, magazine) while offering specific tools to hunt for those jewels Milano often hides.

  1. The site was completely re-engineered and re-designed for a new compelling experience: it offers detailed page for POIs, Events, News, and Routes; users can create and share their routes, suggest new places or events, add events to their calendar, see what other users like or place they have visited the most.
  2. The online magazine collect the most interesting contents of the month offering an insight of the editorial board view.
  3. The app (iPhone only) brings the online experience  down to the street: POI, events and routes sports an offline heading feature to explore the city without the need of a data plan. Released in Aug. 2014, the app (MVP) was featured by Apple as Best New App (Italian store) with the likes of Dropbox, Instagram, etc. and retained the position for 3 weeks. In the same period, it was among the first 30 apps for the category “travel”.

My Role

  • App: concept design, hi-res mockup, navigation flow, interactive prototypes (i.e. routes navigation, drawer and search, navigation – see the video), development supervision (SCRUM oriented)
