RentRave is a platform that organizes rental listings and allows users to read and write reviews of rental listings. My client wanted to create a mobile app to encourage transparency between renters and landlords. Using UX methodologies, I designed a protoype for his idea while focusing on the user interface and visual design of the mobile app.

People who are looking to rent apartments don't have any way to learn about past experiences of those who have lived in a particular rental in the past. There needs to be more transparency to hold apartment complexes and landlords accountable.
I created a mobile app to provide users with a platform to read and write reviews regarding rental apartments in San Francisco. This community will enable rental home seekers to make more informed decisions on where to live and what to expect from various living situations.
Due to time constraints and client emphasis on visual design, I only able to complete a limited amount of user research. However, through the user interviews I was able to conduct and my analysis of various real estate apps such as Airbnb and Zumper, I developed three key design decisions.
After synthesizing the data I gathered and determining a balance between stakeholder and user goals, I developed a user flow to help guide my ideation and sketching process.
After sketching out a few flows and screens, I started wireframing out the app so I could do some testing on it. See below for some of the first wireframes that came out of the sketching and ideation process.
