I chose to enhance the Spotify for Artists dashboard and microsite as my thesis project in my UX course. Initially, aiming to answer the “How can people find more new music?” question.

Focusing on Spotify as the listening platform, I interviewed both listeners & musicians. My user research led me to conclude that most people find new music on playlists but that most musicians have trouble getting placed on playlists. The slideshow below is a UX presentation that details my process, findings, and recommended solutions.

The mockup below shows my proposed solution: (1) adding a banner to the artist’s dashboard alerting the artist of any crucial updates needed to their profile, (2) adding iconography to the highlights section that will highlight and appear green when viewed on hover and (3) chatbot to talk with a live representative/artist relations specialist.
