It’s safe to say that most of us here at InVision are huge fans of HBO’s Silicon Valley. As cheerleaders for UI/UX design, we watched the events of season 3 in horror as Richard and company launched a poorly designed—and even more unacceptably user-tested—app.

Were you surprised when their user rate plummeted? Neither were we.

The answer for terrible user rates was obvious to designers—the Bangladeshi click-farm fiasco could have been avoided by implementing an effective design strategy from the beginning of the launch of Pied Piper, and definitely not as an afterthought.

We were curious—how would designers have changed Pied Piper’s UI/UX to make it more successful? To celebrate the recent premiere of season 4—and because we love website and app concepts so much—we’ve curated this roundup of our favorite Silicon Valley redesigns posted on Dribbble. Check them out!

Hooli Dashboard by Henrique Macedo. Okay, we know this isn’t Pied Piper, but we love this simple, clean dashboard concept for “the most respected brand in the world”.
