Ethical & Flexible Apartment Sharing

I had the opportunity to collaborate with a creative director and brand strategist on a freelancing project, creating an app named 'Eaves.' Our goal was to develop a platform for a community of people living across the world eager to share their homes in order to travel more flexibly.

New population of remote employees can’t afford the digital nomad lifestyle due to the varying cost of living aboard. 

The privileges of traveling, especially internationally is that it creates community displacement and wider gentrification.

People are currently using social media and outdated websites to list available homes for short to medium leases (1-3 months). However, these platforms weren’t designed for this experience, creating many limitations.


A unique app experience that is tailored towards the needs of our identified target audience.
