This is the first design of Legito (it used to be called Contractator) that I drew in the legendary graphical editor Paint for Windows.
So when you complain about our user interface in the future, remember this picture – it could be much worse! Seriously, sometimes I feel that things are not going fast enough, but when I look at the first images and the current state, I have to admit that we have moved quite a lot.
But we weren’t totally design losers as you can see on these first mock-ups.
Basic principles of our first draft remained unchanged. The principle of settings of the parties has totally changed.
And here is the first serious UI design.
Well we just wanted to test the idea with a couple of contracts.
Believe it or not, we programmed the first five contracts manually.
It was pretty time-consuming. One contract took us a couple of days instead of hours with our editor. It’s lean start-up, baby!
After the summer vacation we formed a team and needed to clear up our future plans. No one at my second alma mater – Faculty of Informatics – would praise me for this parody of the ER diagram.
To be honest I do not remember what I wanted to say with this picture. 🙂
Because we were accepted to Web Summit we had to stop joking around and do some serious user testing.
Here we go, at Web Summit. That means that from now on everyone knows about our app and users’ money starts coming and we are practically rich, or aren’t we?
In reality our first online paying customer came seven and half months later.
Web Summit was great because it helped us find out what’s wrong with the app and what we have to change. We started working on the improvements. FYI: we changed our name.
We finally finished our MVP and released it to the online world.
… with MVP the easier part ended.
