Similar to tinder, but for languages. The app is for expats, refugees or students who wants to improve their languages skills and meet new people while doing so. It’s particularly useful for people who just moved to another country because it’s an alternative for expensive and inaccessible languages courses and a way to meet with new people.
You can choose between casual language exchange, mainly helping each other, and paid language lessons, in which everyone can present themselves as a teacher if you have some spare time. Like this, we make language lessons personal and flexible. But, most of all, we connect entrants with locals in different places around the world.
I worked on this project during my internship at GRRR in 2017. My role was to design the interface of the app, to prototype it and to test it afterwards. I also had to design communication materials such as stickers and flyers to help the app gain visibility for our primary user groups: expats and dutch students. I was helped and tutored by Rolf Coppens, Jeroen Disch, Joséphine Cambier, Katie Bogdanska (prototyping), and Myonne Smid (user testing).
Coming from a non-digital background, Ananas is the first app I ever designed. I had to learn the digital rules of consistency and practicability.
