#Open access to reading content in Mexico

Mexico has a bad reading reputation. Statistics are poor compared to other countries: Mexicans read 5.3 book per year*.

Isn’t just about the statistics. There’s a relation to reading content access and the costs it means. Nubleer pretends to solve that through a digital reading platform in a monthly subscription basis. Lowering costs, opening access to thousands of contents and healing Mexico’s statistics.


I was in charge of design. Making all decisions based on users need and business goals. My design process was as following:

  1. User research
  2. Defining proto-personas
  3. Functionality and requieremnts
  4. Navigation design
  5. Sketching
  6. Wireframes
  7. Prototype v1
  8. User testing
  9. Prototype v2
  10. Documentation
