RACCOON LAUNDRY APP


Raccoon, the ideal booking app designed for perfecting your washing routines. Historically, apartment complexes with shared washrooms have struggled with inefficient booking and payment systems. Whether it's jotting down your name on an occupied schedule, purchasing time slots from infrequently available neighbors, or discovering your clothes scattered on the basement floor after forgetting to retrieve them—these challenges have persisted.

This app enables you to schedule wash times, purchase tokens, and initiate laundry cycles—all in one convenient place. Moreover, Raccoon features situation-specific functions, such as real-time updates on your laundry's progress, notifications when it's ready and the ability to nudge the previous user if the clothes are left in the machine. From picking up your laundry basket to putting it down, Raccoon is your new washing companion designed to assist you every step of the way.

RESEARCH

Having partnered with individuals utilizing shared laundry facilities, I embarked on a mission to streamline and enhance the system. Drawing insights from their experiences, I've crafted features to simplify and minimize the inconvenience of laundry. User-centric design hinges on understanding the target audience. Initial research delves into their needs, interests, and behaviors, all aimed at ensuring a seamless experience. In this app's case, the primary users are city dwellers staying in blocks with communal washroom.

PRODUCT DIRECTION

Considering the data collected and user scenarios including stress, relaxation, and urgency to getting the wash over with — I crafted the design. Focusing on essential pages such as booking and coin purchases while continuing to test ideas for user interaction. The increasing diversity in screen sizes and pixel densities complicates asset generation for designers. Using even numbers like 8 for sizing ensures easy and consistent scaling across devices, with the majority of popular screen sizes being divisible by eight.









RELAX YOUR EYES

When it comes to user experience, dark mode is the "cool kid" on the block. Sure, it's been around for years, but it's now a feature on most apps. Dark mode enhances visibility and guides the user seamlessly to the next step. This feature is a breathing space for the eyes, a moment of rest.
