The plethora of apps travelers need to download on their phones can often cause storage overload and inefficiency experience. Limit. Go allows for an easy and quick way to optimize your apps, plan, and explore places to a better efficient traveling experience.
Timeline & My Role
| 3 months
| User Research
| UX / UI Design
During summertime, my friend and I went for a trip to L.A. However; I encountered serval problems:
- When we are traveling in L.A, as our need to move many destinations in one day, since we are not familiar with places, we have to download Uber apps for our main transportation, which is expensive if you are moving to a long distance.
- Every step from booking a hotel to local transportation, food, the planner was hustling; ( need to install more than 4 to more apps to do all of those planning.), which cause the device storage overload, frustrating, and a bit inconvenience to switch around apps.
Nowadays, traveler likes to create and share their content on social media; in most case, using the mobile device are one of the main tools to share with the communities.
What this means is a change of focus. Traveler nowadays shifts their thinking and connect with them on a deeper, more personal level. Visitors want to feel something from the places they visit. They want to be touched by the stories of the people and actively participate in culture and community.
There are many route planning products or mapping products nowadays in the market. However, by data, many users expressed that route planning product and mapping doesn’t satisfy their needs.

Low – Fidelity Prototype & UX Flow Chart
In the first stage of my prototype, I carried out the key feature which I want to explore on Limit.Go
Limit. Go allows users to search for the destination with the different routes of transportations.
Upon going into the local event, the user could view reviews from people who have been there on their previous trip. A rating system is also designed for the user.
For the respondents, I chose people of similar age, but with different professions because the target group is young people between 18 -35 years old.
Mood Broad Design
I designed the logo as a destination icon in the middle, with a paper plane outlining as the conversation mark. The logo represents the concept of “limit the time to plan your trip, and sharing your experience with others!”.
