SOJU2GO is a mobile app mockup that delivers Soju to licensed alcohol vendors such as clubs, restaurants,
and convenience stores. Alcohol vendors place an
order when in need and a courier service
delivers the requested amount
during the busy night. 

This idea was inspired by the constant shortages of Soju during the busy weekends. If club owners ran out
of Soju, the last resort would be to buy out all of the
Soju at the closest corner stores. Consequently,
this creates an imbalance and scarcity of Soju,
thus affecting consumers within the area.

The project focuses on solving the Soju shortages and meeting the last minute business need of local bar
owners in the popular night district of Hongdae.

UX Challenge:

User data collected by Hanyang Business and Marketing students suggested iOS bar owners wanted a recognizable process to place orders when in a busy environment.


This idea aims at providing a new way for fans to have access to exclusive merch, media content, album reviews, and a 360 video based around the theme of the new album all within a music streaming platform such as Apple Music.

The user interface reflects the exact design guidelines to Apple Music and uses the brand identity of the musician  featured in this mock-up.
