Tilt: Organize

The Organize feature in Tilt was the heart and soul of the product. Organizers could quickly raise money for anything. The Chainsmokers, Conan O'Brien, Snoop Dogg, families, sports teams, neighborhoods, and more used Tilt's Organize feature to bring their ideas to life. See how we designed this much-loved feature.

Tilt: Onboarding

See behind the scenes of how we used magic to help Organizers collect more money by making invites ridiculously easy. Not only did Organizers tilt more successfully, it was also an important way to help new users discover Tilt and eventually become Organizers themselves. 

Tilt: Tutorial

Read about one of Tilt's experiments to teach users how collect money from their friends. See if we were able to make Organizers more successful and prolific by showing them a simple and friendly tutorial. I also show how content drove the screen design more than visual decoration.
