  • Mobile kiosks that allow jobseekers to apply for jobs via MyCareersFuture and conduct video call meetings with a Career Ambassador to receive job search tips and advice.
  • Live text chat feature between the Career Ambassador and jobseeker during the video call
  • Database management system


Design Considerations

The functionalities of the kiosk was designed with the older population and users with impaired senses in mind. It incorporates a voice-over guide in four languages – English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil– to cater to non-English speaking users. Additionally, visual interface elements are kept large for better readability and navigation. For instance, we used large-sized Emojis for users to better express their emotions during the rating.

What is Team Build It?

As its name implies, the platform serves as a tool for organizers to create and run hybrid or digital treasure hunts in an intuitive or easy way. It can be used for, but is not limited to, team building, educational purposes and corporate engagement. The app has gone live since July 2021.

Team Build

Personal avatar & group photos

One of the first few steps that the user undergoes is forming teams, creating a personal avatar, and a group photo. To create an avatar, the user snaps a shot before choosing a face filter to apply. After that, the system combines individual avatar shots into a group photo.

Technically, implementing this feature was tricky as there was a need to align images utilizing multiple Augmented Reality (AR) trackers. The result is an advanced AR experience that combines numerous AR features simultaneously.

Qaf Dictionary

Directionality of the Arabic script & UI

The Arabic script is written from right to left, which means that the first letter of a word is written on the right side of the page, and subsequent letters follow towards the left. The entire layout flows from top to bottom, right to left to match the reading behaviour and direction of the language. However, the dictionary app’s UI is kept left-to-rights to fit non-Arabic native speaker’s mental model.

Use of Colors

Use of colors

Green is often associated with Islam and is extensively used in the Qaf Dictionary. It was the favorite color of Prophet Muhammad and is commonly used in Islamic art and architecture. It is also found in the flags of many Islamic countries, including Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Iran.

Make learning easier

The app includes transliteration (using a phonetic system to represent Arabic sounds using the Latin alphabet) and audio clips to help non-Arabic speakers learn Arabic pronunciation. Additionally, there is a search functionality for easy information retrieval, and visuals aid comprehension. Memory cards will be introduced in the future.

Make Easier Learning

Content Management System

A dictionary app CMS allowing admin to add words ensures content accuracy, diversity, and relevance to user needs. This enhances user experience and engagement, encouraging more frequent use of the app.


Some tips on designing for the Arabic customers

Aligning items in a list

Aligning items in a list

Maintain consistent alignment for all text items in a list, including those displayed in a different script. This is important as we tend to read from top to bottom.

Align text based on language, not just interface. For example, English text in a right-to-left interface should remain in left-to-right format for optimal legibility.

Flip controls

A “Flip controls” feature in an app allows easy switching between left-to-right and right-to-left layouts. This accommodates Arabic native speakers and non-native speakers, enhancing usability and flexibility.

Some icons do not need flipping

Symmetric or circular icons like a gear or magnifying glass do not need flipping or mirroring in Arabic interfaces. Directional icons or icons with text and numbers may require adjustments depending on their orientation.

Using font typefaces that supports Arabic

Using font typefaces that supports Arabic

To design digital interfaces with Arabic text, use fonts that support its unique features, like right-to-left directionality and complex letterforms. Fonts like Adobe Arabic, and SF Arabic ensure legibility and cultural appropriateness. Consider font size, spacing, and line height as well.

No numbers
More numbers

Numbers still go from Left-to-right

Arabic numerals are written from left to right like in Western languages, so they don’t need flipping or mirroring in Arabic interfaces. However, it’s important to ensure consistency in directionality and alignment when using numerals and Arabic script together.

Common Suits

Personalized fashion

The hallmark of a good rendering is photorealism. Today customers want to see and sense the product before purchasing. Apparel rendering allows the customer to make and see every change in real time, capturing all visual aspects of the garments. There are hundreds of 2D models and permutations allowing for visualisation in fabric, pocket style, collar style, sleeve style, buttons and more.

Improved online-to-offline retail experience

The Custom Suits website now provides a variety of products, prices, and customization options, along with order tracking for online customers. Those who prefer physical stores can easily schedule appointments after viewing the online catalog.


How technology will make fashion more sustainable

The fashion industry is notorious for emitting more greenhouse gases than aviation and shipping combined. As sustainability becomes a key concern for ecologically sensitive buyers, customised become more prized over mass-produced pieces. At the same time, retailers avoid overstocking, overproducing and having unsold supplies thrown away in landfills.


Other benefits of investing in tech

Greater convenience as customers can either purchase online or book an in-store appointment

An app that crashes hurts business

Nothing spells a bad user experience more than a mobile app crashing. In fact, in today’s competitive mobile app landscape, users have opportunities to switch product easily. Some might even avoid downloading an app if they read complaints about bugs before they actually try it. Needless to say, this breaks the business – lowering customer acquisition, retention and revenue.

Online platform for finding digital tutors

How then, to stop the crashing?

Hipster’s developers quickly realised that they had to rebuild the app in order to eradicate the problem. They then proceeded to:

  • Not displaying the full listing of tutors to a user at any one time. Rather, the technology optimizes the results based on one’s location and input. The user can then send messages to up to 10 tutors and trainers nearby.
  • After five months of hard work, our developers shifted to the then latest version of the PHP framework, Laravel, and improved the coding. They also successfully integrated user data from the old system in this process.

Improvements & outcome

Besides overhauling the app’s user interface design, Hipster also built a new website. The new design was well-received. The app even won the Certificate of Merit (Public Service Distinction) at the Asia Smart App Award in 2019. Tueetor has also successfully launched its services in three other countries – Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia.

After the first successful partnership, we continued to work with Tueetor, developing a Coursesaver module, their website, and their second app, 10MT. Hipster is proud of Tueetor’s successes and happy to work together for the past five years. (to the next five years and more ahead)


survey app development

From physical to digital

Previously, volunteers would use hardcopy survey forms when interviewing the seniors. Volunteers then hand the documents to the staff for data entry. Hipster digitalized KWSH’s survey process. By developing an intelligent real-time tabletV app and backend survey software, volunteers can collect data from interviewees onsite via a tablet app at HDB blocks. KWSH’s staff then manage the surveys and data in the backend.

survey software solution

Challenges to solve

  • Manual data entry is labour intensive and prone to errors
  • Manual organizing of the data and sharing of data analytics to relevant stakeholders
  • Ensure security and restrict access of data at all times
  • Easy administration of multiple survey types concurrently


Design considerations

After discussion with the KWSH’s team, we found that the majority of the interviewees are seniors. With that, we designed a tablet app that caters to the seniors’ needs.

Here are some well thought out features we have implemented:

  1. Option to change the survey font size (with three options to pick from)
  2. Question validation (When the respondent skips a required question, the system prompts them to answer it before proceeding to the next section)
  3. Skip logic (what question or page a respondent sees next is based on how they answer the current question)
  4. Various questions and answers layout templates to choose from

Converting data into insights

As for data analytics, it is pretty extensive as we can track:

  1. How much time does it take to complete each survey
  2. Total no of surveys completed for the month and year
  3. Total no of surveys attempted for the month and year (Tracking surveys that are drafted, completed, and unavailable)
  4. Total survey attempted by Volunteers for the month and year
  5. Total survey attempted at each postal code for the month and year
  6. How many times the survey have been unavailable

Benefits of a survey app

Overall in the backend, KWSH’s staff is able to create new and edit surveys, choose from multiple question types, and send notifications to volunteers via the tablet app. Authorized volunteers have unique login IDs and can only access surveys assigned to them.

All-in-one Tablet Solution

Volunteers only need to carry 1 tablet from block to block and can access the survey with or without internet connection.

Skip Question Logical flow

Volunteers are able to skip questions on a case-by-case basis. This enables them to facilitate the survey process better and with flexibility.

Secure Cloud Storage

All surveys are stored in the cloud and there is no need for physical storage. The database is encrypted and securly stored with automatic back-ups in place.

On-site Notification

Staff can reach out to volunteers in a timely fashion by sending push notifications to their tablet devices.

Real-time Analytics and Insights

Staff and KWSH’s management can easily view insights and real-time analytics of the results collected. This enables the team to perform in-depth analysis on the data collected. They are able to also share/export the results with at a centralized backend system.

Run Multiple Surveys Simulteously

Administrators can set up multiple surveys with different question flows. Furthermore, different teams can use the platform at the same time, with varying access rights assigned to them.
