Focusing on user jobs and consistent user experience
OP3N is used by both followers and creators. A significant portion of followers initially joined OP3N due to their interest in creators who release projects on the platform. Our primary objective is to enhance the follower experience by facilitating easy discovery of their desired projects, seamless purchase of related content, fostering connections with creators, and providing opportunities to explore other projects available on OP3N.
Creators on OP3N are to showcase their projects and offer associated products. Creators hope to establish meaningful connections with their fans, thereby enabling successful product sales.
Followers on OP3N actively seek to support for their admired creators. They aspire to foster closer relationships and gain access to exclusive content from these creators.

Users lack timely information about live sessions, chatroom interactions, and NFT launch sales, which hinders their ability to effectively engage with creators on OP3N.
We prioritize users' preferred communities, prominently displaying them for easy engagement. Tags like "live" and "chat" indicate real-time interactions, encouraging active participation.

Additionally, users are presented with a curated collection of associated NFTs, providing them an opportunity to support their beloved creators and preview upcoming sales.
Design Goal: Coherent
Unified Presentation of Diverse Digital Assets Across Different Stages
User Scenario: Support, Stay Informed
Users want to explore the diverse content offered on the OP3N platform. They navigate through different sections such as communities, merchandise, and ticketing, seeking a seamless experience that maintains a consistent OP3N vibe. Users should be able to easily differentiate the various types of content they encounter and understand how to interact with each of them, while still feeling a cohesive and unified experience throughout their journey.
We designed rich and consistent cards for presenting varied content on OP3N. Visual cues like tags and text help users distinguish content types based on interests or goals. The cards offer clear pathways for intuitive interaction based on user preferences and intentions.
