  • Gumroad
Completed

Gumroad is an e-commerce marketplace where individuals and companies can sell Digital Goods such as Ebooks, Software licenses, Templates, Tutorials, and more.

When creators list their products on Gumroad, they get a public profile available to them. You can think of it as a microsite for them. Most creators use this link to share it further on the internet. It has four main elements: About, their listed Products, their posts, and an option to Subscribe to the Creator. However, the current layout is rigid and doesn’t do much justice in giving a good first impression (first fold).

Improve the Creator’s profile screen (first fold) to ensure a visitor gets a good first impression of the creator and makes them want to engage further i.e. either browse products, read their posts, or learn more about the Creator

Note: Your output should be only one screen (one fold only). You need to design for the Zomato app on either iOS or Android
