Landing Pad is the cloud storage and sharing solution of Gravity Sketch. It allows Gravity Sketch users to save and store their GS files in the cloud and make them accessible from everywhere. It also serves as storage for reference images and 3D assets ready to be imported into Gravity Sketch.
When it was launched, it was very essential in terms of design and functionality, so the company decided to improve the platform to meet Gravity Sketch growing user base and their needs.
User Engagement and Feedback
To better understand our user needs, we engaged a lot with Gravity Sketch extensive user base on various channels like Instagram, Discord and Slack. We run surveys and interviewed a large number of users and came up with a list of pain points and requests.
The final goal of the platform redesign was to make it easier for users to manage and organise their files. Based on user responses, we determined 5 major features that would dramatically improve the platform:
Creating Folders: users need to organise their files in folders.
File Renaming: GS users iterate a lot on their creations, and they end up having their files piling up. A renaming feature was needed to better organise their files.
Sorting Options: Again, finding files can be hard when they start to grow in number, They wished they had the option to sort files by name, size, date of creation, last modified.
File move to location: Since we introduced the folder feature, we also made possible to move file to the desired folder by drag and drop.
3D Preview: Last feature, that ended up being a big separate project, was to allow users to preview their 3D creation directly on the platform, being able to zoom in/zoom out, rotate and change lighting and environment.
