Introduction

What is Fetch?

Fetch is an app/ web app that enables user to set preferences like type of pet they are interested in, age, gender and pet experience to meet their furrever friend. Using compatibility traits drawn from ASPCA Meet Your Match®, Fetch matches users with cats and dogs that are compatible with their lifestyle.
Based on preferences the user can then browse through matching pets that they can like or dislike. Liked pets are saved separately for the user to review and decide to adopt. At any time users can review and change their preferences to view a different range of pets.

Discovery

Research

To better understand how the current market and users expectations, we did a competitive/ comparative analysis.

Competitive / comparative analysis

Pet Finder

Pet Finder helps user search for available dogs, cats, puppies and kittens to adopt. They are able to filter results by location, breed, age, size and gender.

Tinder & Hinge

Dating apps that allow users to “like” or “dislike” potential matches. Mutual liked matches are saved and can be interacted with.

User Personas

John

John loves animals and wants to adopt a pet, specifically a cat. This will be his first time owning a pet.

John wants to see what cats are available in nearby shelters for different preferences, to gauge which of them is a right fit for him.

Jane

Jane wants to adopt another dog so that her current dog wouldn’t be lonely when she is at work.

She is very specific about what type of dog she wants so that she can be sure that the new pet suits her lifestyle and both pets would get along well.

App Flow

To better understand how the current market and users expectations, we did a competitive/ comparative analysis.

Rugged & Reliable

Emulates the feeling of owning a cat or dog. The warm palette relates to the soft cozy feeling of a pet’s embrace while the bold contrast calls to the wild nature of animals and adds clarity to the design.
