Minimalism in the solution was an important necessity. Reducing action has become a top priority. On the main screen, it was necessary to fit all the artists and reject other decisions, so in my concept there was a choice of any date and time.
All available excursions are displayed on the main screen. There are 2 types of cards. X1 and X2. When the screen is reduced, they are rebuilt from 4 columns to 3. And all the cards are in one page on mobile phones.
The card contains all the necessary information: the author's name and surname, time and number of rooms.
The page with the event has a slider and detailed information about the author and the halls. The slider has a single window with interaction.
The user sees the author's name with the option to navigate back to the main selection. In the interaction window, you can select the nearest date, visitors and start time of the event.
As an example, I took the main representatives of minimalism and designed their pages on the website of the minimalism museum.
the interaction window has 6 states. From choosing the time, setting up the event, payment and form — to the screen with the start button of the event (with a timer before the start)
The start screen contains a selection of the date, visitors and the start time of the event.
User gets to the screen with the event settings, where you can select the exhibition period.
After clicking the reserve. The user gets to the first payment screen with a choice of methods.
The second payment screen is the completion of the payment, depending on the previous selection.
After payment, the user gets to the screen with a form for entering mail or phone number.
The interaction window becomes the entry point to the event and has a timer + recommend events.
The letter contains the details of the event and call to action button with a timer. The email is very similar to the interaction window
The cards on the main screen have 3 states. And serve as the input point of the stream.
Below are the states of the event cards with a description of their states.
The event card before the purchase of the visit.
A card after the purchase, with a timer before the event starts.
The card after the purchase, with the start button.
It is a pity that the stream was not the main task, because this direction has great potential and it can become a good project in the future. At the moment, the raw version with a chat
