Design scenario:


Our fictional startup is developing a music listening mobile app. The current sign-up flow has received complaints about it being confusing and time-consuming with a 35% abandon rate. Your task is to redesign the sign-up flow to make it more user-friendly and efficient. Note: for this exercise we want to see how you think through user flows, not necessarily how beautiful your designs are

  • Using a design tool of your choice, create designs for a revised sign-up process
  • Annotate in the designs how user pain points are addressed
  • Annotate in the designs the user flow and any major steps and user decision points
  • Annotate in the design any assumptions you’ve made with respect to information architecture and user flow
Current Sign-Up Flow:
  • Welcome Screen:
    • User sees the app’s welcome screen with a ‘Sign Up’ button.
  • Account Information:
    • User is required to enter their email, create a password, and input additional personal information (name, date of birth, city/state of residence).
  • Verification:
    • An email verification link is sent to the user’s provided email address. User needs to click the link to verify their email.
  • Once email is verified, user uses an authenticator application for identity verification
  • Profile Setup:
    • After email verification and authenticator app setup, users are redirected to a profile setup page where they must add a profile picture, bio, music preferences and other details.
  • Preferences:
    • Users are prompted to set preferences related to app notifications, account settings, and music preferences.
  • Terms and Conditions (our fictional lawyers require this):
    • Users must accept the terms and conditions before proceeding.
  • Completion:
    • After completing all the above steps, users are finally registered and directed to the app’s main screen.
Pain Points:
  • Sign-up options
    • Users want a simpler option for sign-up
  • Identity Verification
    • Some users don’t have an authenticator app
  • Excessive Information Input
    • User feel that too many personal details are requested
  • Long process
    • Too many mandatory steps to sign-up
