Guiding art seekers to local art scenes throughout the globe
Explore the local art scene
Artsee is a travel app which incorporates all the relevant and up-to-date information of the local art scenes across the globe - presenting galleries, museums, artist's studios and art stores in one platform.
Creating a “one stop App” for art seekers, presenting all the relevant and up-to-date art information.
Artist's are my main inspiration for the App. The idea for the user is to easily locate and view artists' works either in museums, galleries or even visit their own private studios (those that are with us of course). Wherever the user is across the globe, it allows an easy, efficient way without getting confused and frustrated with all the scattered information out there.
And many many more
So what's the problem?
Awareness is key
Many art seekers love exploring art across the world and admire the local scenes, but some don’t necessarily know or are familiar with them before digging into a long, time consuming research.
There isn’t one app out there that incorporates all the relevant up-to-date local art information. Therefore I based my benchmark research on city related and experiences search platforms.
Flood of information
Planning art activities for your next trip can be a challenging task. In order to know what’s happening, the user has to scroll through several official websites and relevant articles. Sometimes an innocent Google search might lead to an outdated exhibition and a waste of precious time which leads to unnecessary frustration.

After completing the preliminary research, I created the wireframes of the App. My goal was to try and find the best, efficient and friendly flow in order to help the user locate all the relevant information in an quick, yet informative way.
