The research part was very prompt for this product (Thanks to experience we have gained while creating and growing the previous 2 LGBTQ dating apps - Surge, Grizzly). I've started with a secondary research focused on the current market. All of the dating apps I mention helped with creating the essence of Zoe.
The idea was to create a product that can fill the gap on the market with LGBTQ women dating apps and enables a safe space for the target group. The next part was to validate the idea and gain information about what targeted community lacks. I've done approximately 10 researches with users from the US and EU.
Participants lacked trustworthy presentation of dating apps that would have an authentic feeling. The dating app market has a variety of products but the mobile app dating scene for LGBTQ women is mainly represented by one app that dominates the market.

I've cooperated with an amazing designer Josef Sauer and development team. This was actually my first project that I've done from the beginning to the end and was in charge of the whole process.
User & Media Response
Thanks to an amazing STRV team, we've created an amazing product. The milestone I am the most proud of is that Zoe has been featured on AppStore. Besides that we've cooperated with various famous Youtube and Instagram influencers.
This was my heart project that I had an opportunity to create from the scratch. I am very grateful that I got this possibility to deliver a lovable product. Zoe also confirmed my thoughts about how it is important to create a valuable product. I was very surprised when we've found out how the LGBTQ community is excited about this mobile dating app. It is great to know that we haven't delivered just another dating app that's main focus is to monetize, we've also enabled to create a safe space for people all around the world.
