Mapping the experience

Scoping viable MVP while creating the IA.

Feature Set

Trello boards were used all the way through from the very beginning.

Pre-Existing brand exploration

What the Founder/CTO handed to me...

Native iconography

Considering users familiarity with patterns and iconography.

Palette exploration

How we might possibly match appropriate colours to support calls and interactions avoiding distraction?

Start sketching

Logotype evolution

And the winner is...

We communicated via Whassup with the users from the very beginning to keep them engaged at all time, communicate changes, present new visual elements or ask anything that we needed to know. This is also valid for the final version of the logo and it;s applications.

Visual language + Brand expression

Supporting interaction – UX meet UI meet Transitions
What about empty states, loading, dialling, calling and all transitions and instances which are continuosly happening unnoticed?
Your logo persist few seconds during the loading screen then eventually disappear to leave room for more important interface elements to let the users perform their tasks.

In this particular case given the nature of the mark, his metaphor and the potential actions that could empower it makes sense to support all the relevant functionalities with transitory visual elements to suggest what is going on in the screen at different stages supporting both affordance and interactions while improving the overall experience.

Monitoring

Constantly tracking users behaviours in spending and consumption.
