The app LINE PLAY is a social networking app using avatars from all around the world.
From a design perspective, there are various challenges such as the aspects of communication, entertainment, and promotion.
The company Line Play has been established in 2011. We started as a start-up with 10 people including strategic planners, developers and designers, and now more than 160 people are working together.
The first year, until the app was launched, I research and designed UI mock-up. A lot of trials and experimentations had done from the format or implementation to the style of the application. After the app was rolled out successfully, we embark on improvement through the update regularly.
Friends, chatting, and diary can be included the communication category. The diary project was the most contribution I’ve done. We provide the diary that not only helps people to record their precious memory but also encourages ongoing communication between friends by writing on the guest book or giving emotional stickers. Furthermore, the diary has a variety of theme, so users can feel more attached. Recently, we more focus on usability and convenience of it such as two view types and the guest book. In addition, I designed the list of friends and supported developers for improvement of friends’ list.

There are several entertainment such as games and event. Among them, I was dedicated to the avatar contest held every month. Every time the number of participants steadily increases, and the average participants were more than 60,000. Consequently, the sales of the fashion shop were up 40 percent more than the same period of the passed week. In addition, through the daily bonus event, DAU(Daily Active Users) is increased.
