Social Media Platform.

Dec 2023 - Feb 2024 — 3 Months

Building a Comprehensive Ecommerce Platform


Imagine a social media platform where you can create your profile, manage your posts, receive notifications, and chat with friends, all in one convenient spot. That's what this platform is all about!


In this project, I wore two hats as both the designer and developer. My main tasks included:

  • Researching how users interact with the product to improve their experience.
  • Creating designs that are visually appealing and easy to use.
  • Figuring out the best technologies to use for the project.
  • Bringing the project to life through development.


This is the style guide, final design, and sitemap of the project.


I created a sitemap to show how the website is organized and connected. It's like a map that helps us see all the pages and how they're linked together, making it easier to design and navigate the site.
