Songkick | App Redesign | UI Challenge
In a one-day sprint, we redesigned a concert booking platform to enhance the user experience through improved information architecture.
Our challenge was to redesign the UI of four screens in an app without UX research the following day. We focused on reevaluating the existing information architecture and the potential need for changes in content organization, navigation logic, and sequencing.
So, why Songkick?
Songkick has evolved into an all-in-one platform for discovering live music events, tracking favorite artists, getting instant concert alerts, and buying tickets for upcoming shows.
While seeking areas for improvement, we conducted a design critique with fellow designers, leading to intriguing findings:
Lack of white space for better readability
Absence of filters
Absence of personalized suggestions
We drew inspiration from three apps: Eventim, Eventbrite, and Spotify. These competitors shared several key features:
Songkick's current color scheme includes bright red, white smoke, gray, and black. While these colors complement each other on the color wheel, their utilization within the app needs improvement. To optimize the design and maintain brand consistency, we decided to keep Songkick's existing color palette. This approach ensures that current users can still recognize the app and avoids forcing them to adapt to a completely new look. We recognize that people tend to resist significant changes due to their habits and familiarity.
We concentrated on the following elements:
Size of images and design elements
Quantity of information
