Explore: Find Friends

Member explore page for the Backplane social media platform. Search with context from a members posts. Meant to help someone decide if another member would be a person of interest, to create better connections.

This is the People section of Backplane's Explore page. The purpose of this page is to 1) Help you find people you already know. 2) Help you find people with similar interests. 3) Suggest users similar to those you are currently following.
 
We purposed that the best way to know if someone was worth following is by the content they post. So I put as much content up front without it being overwhelming. It really helped a user to see if that person was someone who they would be interested in. 
 
It was an interesting challenge to balance all the visual elements with the standard metadata that is expected to be seen. Great care was taken in the spacing and visual weight of all the elements.
The whole design was thought out modularly for responsive purposes. Below is the smallest breakpoint at 320px. A lot of content is removed at this view because of the limited screen space and our desire to keep things as simple as possible.
