The Medici Family
Florence's cultural history during the Renaissance is intimately associated with the Medici family, arguably the most famous and powerful of all Italian dynasties. The Medici’s started funding artists and trade leaders in Italy in 1500’s, leading a flowering of the arts, with commissions going to artists such as Michelangelo, Pontormo and etc. We aim to be an art-incubator where young and emerging artists can experience a moment to develop and to nurture their creativity so that they can lead the avant-garde of the 21st century. In the midst of interactive communication online and offline, we believe that the masterpiece naturally arises like Michelangelo in the Renaissance.
The underlying factor for young artists is time and reso- urces. A universal concern for art graduates is how they will pay for a studio and materials, not to mention bills, and what time will be left for actually making art.
Art-Collectors need to browse, save, learn about, and collect valuable art- works in efficient and effective ways. If the service would be a personalized, it would be the best experience for them.
The vast majority of collectors say their purchases are passion-led and investment-informed from professional curators.
Young artists need to meet people and organizations that can link them with other institutions and with the global market, affordable studios and publish coverage of their work.

After defining the key users, I began brainstorming features, information, and content that would help the users fulfill their main goals.
I placed the features along a feature priorization matrix. Post-its places on the left side of the matrix represent “Nice-to-Have” features; features that would be helpful, but not neccessary to complete any of the personas’ main goals. “Must-Have” features were placed the right side of the matrix. These features were required to complete goals.
Base off primary user personas, I identified that the most important tasks were: Discover(quality-controlled artworks), Browse(recently updated artworks), For You(personalized curation service) and Daily Moment(behind stories of the artworks).
After placing the features along the Feature Prioritization Matrix, I was able to visualize what were the most important features to solve and address first. From there, I started to define a sitemap for BBuzzArt.
