teenevents.co.uk wireframe

Update 22/11/2012: The labelling throughout the Teen Events wireframe and notes on this page were updated to be consistent with this post. Some of the more complicated technical build work was removed.

…And this is what it looks like. Sort of. I created these wireframes which bring the concept of Teen Events more vividly to life.

I am creating a platform that allows the user to discover ‘real world attend-able’ and watchable / readable / listenable / buyable events by ‘things you love’, location and friends; and then follow and be alerted to them. Continue reading “teenevents.co.uk explained”


And welcome.

This blog documents my attempt to create a London-based web startup called teenevents.co.uk. An online and mobile platform for (young) people to discover, follow and be alerted to the things they love.

And that’s that. I’ll follow up soon with an introduction to the concept.
