As part of my UX Design classwork through BrainStation, I designed an app based on insights gained through my experience in the comedy industry.
Keeping a show running on schedule is important. Producers currently use multiple tools to run a show:
- Stopwatch to track set times
- Notes app (or a physical notebook) to manage the running order
- Flashlight (on their phone or an old-school type) to signal to performers that their time is up. The combination is cumbersome, and data is difficult to track and save.
What if an app combined all these tools into one interface?
The Stagetimer app makes it easier for live comedy producers to keep their shows running on schedule. It allows users to create and edit running orders, track the pacing of a show in real time, signal to performers that their time is up with just one touch, and summarizes results to help influence how they book and structure shows in the future.
