Brief and approach

XYZ Works is a premium co-working environment located in Manchester. Upon launch of their amazing facilities, they were in need of an app that allowed their members to engage with other members through networking and events, as well as allow them to carry out the day to day needs of any business within their working facility.

In order to get a good gauge of what their members would want from a members app, the team at Dark Blue travelled to Manchester to experience the space as a working hub. We interviewed members and presented them with a best practise prototype. One of the assumptions that we were keen to challenge was preference of device to carry out tasks through the app. Off the back of the study, we created a solution that met the members needs for launch, as well as establish a design system for feature development of the app.
