Enhancing Gluwa
Mobile Wallet

A borderless financial platform

GLUWA OVERVIEW

Gluwa’s dream is to help build an open and interconnected world, one that gives each and every person in it, an opportunity to thrive together. National boundaries, information asymmetries, and financial exclusion all continue to undermine the potential of the global financial system.

They strive to create a new, reliable, and open alternative using blockchain technology, with information transparency at the very heart of our vision for the future. By giving anybody in the world access to valued currency, credit, or investment opportunities, free from national boundaries, we are building a future of financial inclusion, in which everybody can be their own bank.

QA & SUGGESTIONS

Observations & Annotations

Inconsistencies & Colors

Getting to know Gluwa products and services that transpired over the years prior to my starting,  Kyle highlighted areas of accessibility & inconsistencies to gain a deeper understanding of what’s been done vs what stands out to possibly suggest other solutions.

It was a great chance to gain an understanding of why decisions were made, get to know them,  and how they got here. I was able to back up with research and findings ahead of time prior to & during redesigning their Gluwa wallet.

Project Outcome
CONCLUSION

Overall this project & working for Gluwa was exciting as it’s the field that I’m most passionate about. It was also super challenging with a lean team that had its fair share of issues prior to me joining, as I saw it mainly as growth & workflow to delivery processes as a team… They often ignored testing and proper design auditing and proper product design, however, that’s part of growth as I saw a lot of opportunities here.

My endeavor was short-lived here due to moving all of the marketing & design overseas to Asia. It was disappointing for sure,  as it was right after I delivered three features and the entire app 7.0 /7.1 /7.2 – The joke I heard that I thought was sorta relevant was, that “working in blockchain” is as volatile as the market. “Doh'”

Well, “I’ll keep pushing forward” – As Kyle keeps in mind, “if you hadn’t faced opposition you wouldn’t improve nor change“…
