People find it difficult to connect during social distancing measures due to COVID 19. How might we create a platform for social interactions when physical interaction is not a possibility?


Netflix party: Over 1,000,000 people use Netflix Party to link up with friends and host long distance movie nights and TV watch parties Dj dnice’s instagram party: Over 100,000 live viewers turned in to the dance party


Let’s gather all of the incredible digital resources that people are creating in one convenient location to create a website to help people maintain their social circle through virtual interaction. Users can also post suggestions of events which can be featured in the other categories.


I started the research by looking at news media, websites and apps people are using to maintain their social relationships virtually. The insights gathered from the article and the varied ways people are looking for a curated platform that provides viable resources and tools to help them alleviate their despair due to social distancing by connecting them to their families and friends virtually. I also looked at the new Google website which seems to provide the same resources but with limited information. I then interviewed 2 persons using facetime and also tried some of the tools to gather experiences, features and opinions on the varied kinds of platforms they enjoying using without frictions when connecting and the missing link was there should be a platform dedicated to helping people with the viable tools to connect during the pandemic.

Design System

The homepage provides the features in a grid system to make it easy for users to navigate to other pages from the value proposition. The home button displays icons, serving as a wayfinder/navigator to features of the categories in the grid. I made the background color to promote similarity to ensure consistency with the symbols.

It's not goodbye, it's see you later!

We have decided to sunset our Dream Projects Career Coaching service until we can properly devote our time and attention to this space.
