Solution

The new solution empowers students to access affordable help from certified teachers instantly, live and 24/7. Booking a certified tutor is easy and takes only two easy steps.

First, students select a subject and level. Next, they just have to confirm and start the session. Students can use the video function in the app and show the question to the teachers. The app is integrated with an option for students to ‘favourite’ teachers so that they can connect to a specific teacher directly in the future.

We are proud to be working with Tueetor to bring affordable education to more students.

Stuck in schoolwork?

Adopting the Agile methodology, we create screen designs and ship them for development. The MVP with video call feature was launched before other functionalities like chat and pen were added. Improving the app step by step with feedback.

Dynamic billing system. $10 per 10 minutes, extend the session as needed or purchase a subscription.

We have recently received complaints that members of the public are targeted by some agents through WhatsApp who claim to be from Hipster Private Limited and using our UEN number of Hipster Private Limited to prove that they are legit Singapore companies.

They also use a similar looking domain name, our logo, and address on the website to make it as similar & credible as possible.

We want to make it very clear that Our company doesn't appoint any agent/recruiter for this so call 'money earning by apps rating' or 'any Ponzi scheme' where you need to deposit any money to get jobs.

Our jobs are always posted on official company pages on social media such as Linkedin, Instagram, Facebook and WSG.

Deliverables

  • 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.

L’Hommes

Custom tailored clothes online

From job interviews to weddings and black-tie events, there are plenty of special occasions when one needs a suit or shirt that fits perfectly. However, purchasing a tailored made clothing piece can be costly and time-taking. To offer a hassle-free tailoring experience at customers’ convenience, L’HOMMES took an innovative approach of providing an online tailoring service.

Design and measure

First, the customer selects the fabric and checks the design in real-time 3D modeling. Next, using a body measurement technology, L’HOMMES can measure the customer’s size in a minute. The customer can then edit specific measurements if required.

After details of the design and measurements are input, the following details can be presented in the 2D/3D format:

  • Shirt
  • Collar
  • Buttons
  • Sleeves
  • Pocket details
  • Shirt fit (Slim or Straight Cut)
  • Fabric material

4 Technologies & an ecosystem

Once an order is received, L’hommes sends the measurements to their tailors for customization.
An integrated backend system built by Hipster makes it easy to manage BOTH the production and selling process.

Furthermore, artificial intelligence, computer vision, deep learning, and 3D matching converge to make accurate body measurements possible.

Does the L’HOMMES website inspire you? Looking to elevate your brand’s e-commerce experience?

Hipster has a wealth of experience in implementing technologies relating to e-commerce of different products. Our consultant can recommend you the right technology solution that fits your specific business and budget requirements.

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.

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.

Create challenges dynamically

One of the first few steps that the user undergoes is forming teams, creating a personal avatar, and a group photo. To create an Once the teams are formed, they can embark on a journey of adventure and fun! Challenge types include:

  • Timed challenges to increase competitiveness
  • Location-based tasks verified using GPS.
  • Submission of photos and videos taken by the team

Some of these challenges require an admin to confirm manually before letting the group proceeds to the next stage. Whereas in other challenges, the group can proceed automatically upon completion of a milestone.

Gone live but work continues

At Hipster, we embrace different project management approaches. For T’bit, the team practised Agile – focusing on iterative development. By delivering features incrementally, we work with clients to get their products to market quickly. This ensures faster Return Of Investment (ROI) even when the software is in the development process. This tried and tested approach brings satisfaction to Hipster’s clients as we work alongside them to achieve their business goals.

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)

Widus Partners

Professionalism

The website features a clean, minimalist look and an effective navigation design. Unlike conventional financial services websites that may use many words and images, the approach allows the audience to focus on a few key components. Hipster keeps the design interesting by making the hero images fade in and out using CSS animations.

Colors

Colors has a big influence in brand identity and tone of a website. We deliberately chose muted, toned down over bright saturated colors to conveys seriousness and sophiscation. With a moderate color palette comprising, blues, black, white and gold lending to a professional tone. The colours complement well each other and also has the right level of contrast to improve readability.

Typeface

Hipster’s designers quickly realized that the Merriweather and Open Sans is a popular font pairing. Both typefaces are highly legible, even on smaller screens. On the one hand, Merriweather is a serif typeface featuring a tall x-height. Still, it remains relatively small due to its slightly condense letterforms. On the other hand, Open Sans is a sans-serif typeface, designed with open forms and a neutral yet friendly appearance.

Images

The website features a full-sized hero image on its home page, with photos of various cities that Widus operates in. In the foreground, the main header, “Trusted Advisor, Long-Term Strategic Partner,” communicates the brand’s primary message powerfully.

A common issue with full-screen photos is image distortion as it scales vertically or horizontally across browsers. Hipster has optimized the photos such that it displays perfectly across screen sizes.

Multimedia content using videos

Innovative is the word that best describes Lionbot. We ensured their website reverberated innovation with videos and animations working together in tandem to elevate the user interface.

Speed matters

Hosting so many videos would impose a problem to speed, that’s why we used “Cloudfare”, a content delivery network or CDN to manage the quality of speed. As per standard practice, we ensure verification checks reflect excellent scores when it comes to speed.

Backend handling by the website owner

Our content management system or CMS is created on WordPress and we make it super easy for the super admin to handle all content on the dashboard.

All the sections will have a placeholder. We followed the go, edit, publish policy. Simple. That’s it.

A highly secure website

Part of our quality assurance is ensuring all websites meet a high level of security. We verify security measures on all websites with industry-standard tools such as “Security headers” or “Site check”.

 

Imavox

Interactive and clean ui

Instead of a fanciful design, we created a clean full-page slider with some titles and small paragraphs that directly show the website’s purpose. A trendy menu design expresses the beauty of the first interaction with the user.

Typeface and icons

Our UI experts thoughtfully select typefaces and graphic elements to align with the business’ style and tone of voice. For Imavox, we used the typeface family “Futura”, a geometric and crisp sans-serif typeface that is versatile in placements. The graphic style and iconography are also intentionally styled to the brand identity using the brands main colours in gradients.

Handling of backend by the website owner

The website’s content is managed through WordPress, a well-known content management system. The dashboard is customised to easily and independently add, edit, and delete posts, pages, and images. Users can also have different access rights based on their different roles throughout the company.

Ease with page builder

All dashboard sections have a placeholder to make finding, editing and publishing content seamless and straightforward. Simple. That’s it.

Highly secure

Our websites follow a high level of security. Multiple industry-standard tools are used to measure, verify, and ensure high-top security measures. Here are some tools to have a look at:

Rocket speed

User experience statistics suggest that we lose our audiences and our business to slow websites. We ensured the basics were upheld to manage website speed, such as images, js, CSS, and code optimization. Verification checks were also completed with the help of industry-standard tools, ascertaining an excellent speed and optimization score.

Mood lifting interface

Colours and illustrations are among the most powerful tools to set a mood, influence users’ emotions and draw attention to an interface. The website is playfully cartoonish and aimed at appealing to the younger audience. Our developers cleverly integrated the custom graphics into the website for front-end display.
