Regardless of any design guidelines, the purpose of this redesign project is to explore user interface and user experience design. The “original” Snapchat was a simple product, letting people talk with friends just like how they do it in real life. But I like text messaging more than real life chatting. It is like talking with mask on my face, I can be braver and more honest. No record, no burden. But now, it is more about “sharing”, the beauty of text messaging is lost. In this redesign project, I would love to trace back.
