The challenge

Facilitating deeper engagement within an online sharing theater

At the beginning of 2020, the sudden epidemic forced the closure of theaters, and people in need of watching movies had to postpone their plans indefinitely. Would you feel lonely without your relatives and friends by your side?
My teammates and I first asked friends who love to hang out with friends to learn more about their needs.

I hope I can reserve a room directly in the App and send invitations to my friends.

I hope the system can recommend the best movies according to my preferences and let my friends know my choices

I want to be able to chat with my friends before the movie starts, instead of waiting there without any communication.

When employees need to collaborate with colleagues, they need to wait a long time for feedback.

How might we help families and friends utilize this platform and share their experience with content such as series television shows and movies they love?

The solution

CHLITINA Pro is an online tablet system that helps CHLITINA staff to manage consumers by simple record creation and appointment scheduling.

Secondary Research

I have conducted 4 physical inspections and 10+ interviews to understand the different needs of the boss, store manager, and employees.

Employee Hierarchy
Employee vs Consumer
Consumer vs Services

New Consumer:

1 - 2 Services

Regular Consumer:

4 - 5 Services

Service Analysis

My project is directly related to the services, so I dug into the structures of the services set and seek helpful information.

Some projects require the cooperation of two beauticians.

Facial Spa

Stores provide mid-to-high-end skincare services in the beauty salon.

(counted No. of times) 

Body Spa & Message

Stores are actively published anti-aging and regeneration services for ladies.

Semi-yearly Subscription
(>15 times, no time limitation) 

Take-home Products

Daily skin care product sets are available for consumers to apply in their homes.

Product Combo
(group-buying available) 

Current Product Analysis

To learn about how CHLITINA records the appointment now, I analyzed the current paper worksheet.

What is good:
Beauticians can see the record.

What is not good:
Time duration is unable to be shown.
Paperwork cannot be changed or erased easily.
Summarization can only be calculated by hand.
No service can be shown.

What can better:
We can add other dates information.

Journey Map

The system of the project is complicated, so when I made the journey map, I analyzed the between customers, employees, and storefronts, which helps me know the specific pain points and needs of employees at different steps.

One of the major goals for CHLITINA employees is to catch the consumer and sell the products & services, for that counts as the achievement.

The major challenge for CHLITINA beauticians is when making and updating an appointment, and collaborate with colleagues.

Preparation, especially knowing the consumer and services ahead of time, is important.

Task Flow

I phased out of the reservation area to simulate every step's action by the beautician, finding the flow.

Making Appointment

1. Fills in the consumer record
2. Check date & time

After several rounds of interviews, I finally summarized the major functions of the product.

Prototpe Experiment

Before moving everything digitally, I went through an experiment with paperwork and tested it with my client.

1. Schedules are clearly displayed
2. Time duration available
3. Service available
4. Easy to recognize beauticians


After Setting up the wireframe, I went through the first round of user testing.

1. Beautician day schedule to be visible, and can be completely distinguished appointment has been completed and unfinished appointment.
2. The date needs to be prominent and easy to identify.
3. The interface feedback after sending a cooperation application to a colleague should be different from the status after the cooperation application is passed.

A/B Testings

Top Bar:
I made two versions of the top bar UI and let my clients vote according to their preferences.

White looks fresher than the pink one.

I made two sets of the key elements design and let my client vote according to their preferences.

Group 1: Gray can highlight the characteristics of the button while increasing the sense of hierarchy.
Group 2: The fourth information arrangement method best fits the work style of the beautician.
Group 3: Gold shows a sense of luxury more than cooper.

Major Color:
I made two sets of the key elements design and let my client vote according to their preferences.

The lighter color makes the APP looks more vivid and younger.

JUMP TO Solution


Make for Client

This is my first time design a product that serves a real client. I was so nervous at first, but then I got used to the communication flow. It took me time to understand what my client truly wants and explain the design language.

Brand & Visual Design

I always practice my UX skills. When I set this project outcome to be more visual, I challenge myself to practice visual design. I feel confident with my visual design skill, so I tried to go one step further, which is redesigning the brand.

Balance Client & Theis

As this is project also my thesis, I listened to my instructor and classmates' suggestions, having my style when I design.


More features from the system?

-The appointment-making product is great, but if you have time, add the record of consumer information and calculation page for store achievement.

Next Step

Other digital touchpoints

-I will try to make a whole set for my client, including phone and website touchpoint.
