The task: Development of a web software for organising, sharing and joint editing of contact data for private persons as well as for companies. Requirements: Safety of the software; various account types; desktop version and mobile version. Moreover: Logo development and design, promo-webpage and image photos for illustration.
The promo-website of the Contact-Book address manager features the philosophy of the project in general: even such a serious and prosaic thing
as a contact-centric database can be fun to use if you add little lightness and humour to it.
The Contact-Book gives the possibility to sort contacts by groups with an option to create new groups and edit them.
The most essential information about a contact can be seen at a glance on the general contact list.
A contact page has various options for editing and updating of information: a photograph of a contact can be uploaded; telephone numbers, addresses, birth-dates, web-links and further additional information can be added. Moreover, a user can type in a description or comments to a certain contact which will only be readable to their author, even if this particular contact is shared with other users.
Although Contact-Book is no social network, it features quite a few social network features. Friends can be found directly
on Contact-Book or invited to Contact-Book via email. The list of friends, as well as Contact data list can be sorted into groups.
Every friend's page consists of two parts: one part is personal information shared by the friend with others,
and another part – a comment or a note written by the user for him or herself only for private viewing.
Single contact records or an entire group of contacts can be shared with friends on the Contact-Book. After a friend confirms receiving of the shared contacts he or she can edit and update them as well. The user who shared the contacts initially receives a message with a proposition to update the contact data. He or she can also keep on editing the contacts and share the updates the same way.
Especially for the website of Contact-Book we planned and organised a photo session with several characters.
These imaginary characters represent different types of accounts and illustrate the most important highligths of the programme.
