Senior Project APRIL 2016

FORT MYERS, Fla. (April 14, 2015) – Voyage, a new and innovative travel app that seeks to create a travel community for its users, launches today! CEO of Voyage, Maddie Chaffe, came up with the concept for Voyage and designed the app in Senior Project. Voyage fulfills the desire humans have to find connection with others while exploring new territories. 

Voyage provides its customers with a sense of community while traveling. The app offers customers local “matches” that the user, or “traveler”, can choose to explore the area with while visiting their destination. The product matches its travelers based on age, location, and popularity. When a traveler arrives at their destination, finding a new friend to explore with is now as simple as opening an application on their phone. Customers simply download the app, create a travel profile, and choose the “Connect” option to find travelers in the area, which are either ranked by the highest user rating or closest proximity to the user. Users can also communicate with one another through the application, and find local attractions to visit based on their moods.   

“Providing users of Voyage the ability to connect with fellow travelers when they reach their destination will open new doors for travelers and ultimately change the way they view travel.” Says CEO of Voyage Maddie Chaffe. “I created the app prototype digitally using Adobe Illustrator and InDesign. My inspiration for the app came from my personal goal to travel and visit new and exciting areas while also meeting new people.”
