Goals

The current Kiva website works well to introduce the concept and explain the lending process. Main goal of KivaME iPad app was to create more immersive and personalized experience. By using the Facebook login, we are able to offer customized recommendations for lending opportunities. Now users will see Kiva profiles based on places visited, films watched, books read etc.

Profile photos are the most recognizable and valuable Kiva's visual assets. We wanted to highlight them by enlarging them and by removing all surrounding distractions. We overlaid on them several key-informations to enable quicker, more immersive browsing.
