1. New Instagram features

1 week
Individual project

Assignment: Come up with 20 new features for Instagram.

1 Week.

Brainstorm 20 new ideas for features Instagram might add to their product.

Sketch those 20 ideas in low fidelity. Just enough to communicate the idea.

Next week, Bring 20 slides with one sentence and one visual describing each idea.

Assume you will pitch these ideas to the Instagram design team.

  • Who is this feature for?
  • Does this feature fall within Instagram's mission?
  • Would this feature replace existing features, or make it harder to use?
  • Does this compete with other features or product goals?

In class, we will discuss as a group and help you prioritize.
