For our challenge, we’d like you to build out the onboarding process for a smart collar solution for dog owners.
Smart dog collars enable owners to track the real-time location and activity of their dogs. The collar is chew-proof, water-proof, and just generally dog proof. Owners can use Bluetooth to easily connect to the collar and set up their account via a native app on their phone. The collar utilizes GPS technology to track the dog’s location and stays charged for up to 4 months. Users can recharge the collar via usb port.
HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE SECONDARY RESEARCH
The American Humane Association estimates that 1 out of 3 pets become lost at some point in their lifetime and according to the Coalition for Reuniting Pets and Families, less than 23% of lost pets in the U.S. are reunited with their owners.

BRANDING & IDENTITY
VIDEO OF THE PROTOTYPE
"I loved the custom brand and illustrations. They definitely gave a nicer touch to the app. I really liked the 'skip' feature as I felt there were too many steps on the onboarding part. I really liked the brainstorm you had plus the research plus the user flow".
