Project Details

User & Audience

The audience for Let’s Duet Again are bar patrons who want to compete as teams of two against other patrons.

Key Challenges

The app doesn’t require logins or accounts as it uses the bar’s wifi connection to communicate with other users of the same app on the local network. The app’s “disposable” nature precludes the need to create logins or save user information. This results in an easier experience for patrons with less than their full cognitive capacity. The apps work in conjunction to synchronize all aspects of the competition such voting,  queueing entrants, and loading songs.

A couple of key challenges guided our UX decions: keep the app simple enough to use for bar patrons, it’s is a limited engagement app, finally, users may be suffering temporary cognitive burdens. We considered the users’ temporary cognitive burdens and eliminated sign-ups altogether — an extreme nod to lazy sign ups?


No research was done for this app. We had three hours to concept an app, design it, and present it. Given our time constraints, we used Lean UX and Genius Design while keeping user-centric principles in mind.

Additional Info

The team designing this app, “The Pun-o-matics,” of which I was a part with Michael Alford, won 1st Place People’s Choice and 2nd Place by the Professionals’ Choice. The app isn’t actually built but I’d love to collaborate with interested parties in actually building it. It was conceived and designed at Adobe Creative Jam, New Orleans.
