The Problem

Chaintool, a budding startup, approached with an ambitious vision and a talented engineering team but lacked a tangible product. The challenge at hand was to craft an entire brand identity, develop a comprehensive website, and design a web app, essentially building a digital presence and product from scratch.

Design Pricniples

Before the project commenced, I had a kickoff meeting with Yi, the founder of the design team. Yi's impressive background included founding Chaintool, working at Ant Group Finance, Pinterest, and serving as an engineering lead over the past decades. During our conversation, we delved into his vision for the web 3 tool. Having previously worked at design-centered companies, Yi emphasized the importance of user-centered design. Together, we established three key design principles that would guide our work on Chaintool's products.
