Lines is an app that informed users of line lengths at bars. I started this company, designed the branding and product, and managed a team of developers to create the product along with my business partner.

In March 2016 we officially launched Lines, an app that crowdsources wait times for venues at Penn State University using adaptive algorithms and geotracking technology. We had over 1k downloads in the first week, surpassing our goal.

As CoFounder of Lines, I was responsible for establishing the User Experience and the User Interface of the app. 

The user experience was intentionally kept short and sweet. The user is out enjoying their time with their friends and our goal was to help them make the most of their time by providing information fast and getting them to their destination in two clicks.

The branding and user interface is familiar, elevated, and trustworthy. We decided to present ourselves as a cutting-edge brand and community that users would want to be a part of.
