A cleaner, more simplified signup form, and a process that allows users to set up music preferences and find artists and friends to follow before being dumped into a new, unfamiliar site.
A similar version was designed for artists as well. Steps include selecting genres, related artists and uploading music.
Before an artists creates a new account, we check to see if their artist or band name already exists on Grooveshark. If it does, they have to go through a claiming process. I designed these claiming steps, as well as a way for artists to merge multiple profiles using the same name. This way, bigger artists would be able collect their existing music and followers.
I worked on all kinds of onboarding elements (for users and artists) from home page feed modules to empty states to action-based hints.
