A hyper-local social network for use in third places
Interaction prototyping, video
augmented reality, app prototyping
Steep connects people who seek socialization in a third place. Users attach conversation-starting status updates (“pins”) to their location in space.
A third place is somewhere, neither home nor work, that serves as a place for socialization. Steep is an app that makes it easier to meet people in these places. Think of it as a social network combined with a conversation starter.
Before a user posts, they can see other users’ pins appear above their respective heads in real space.
We designed everything from minute graphic details to the AR pop-up layouts in Figma; above, our user flow for the video protoype was made to intertwine with our video production process.
When it’s not feasible to hold your phone camera up, you can see other users’ pins in the non-AR feed.
