I was hired to design the branding and develop both iOS/Android applications for a new social media forum. Winggit allows users to quickly survey responses to questions and debate opinions on important topics.
The card layout gives distinction to large amounts of information and is a subtle throwback to the handwritten survey forms of the past. In addition the colour palette needed to be distinct to stand out amongst competitors so I chose an eye-catching aqua trim to highlight all important actions.
The success of the application relies heavily on user participation so to encourage this interaction I constructed a clean and simple layout to effectively guide users through the steps of asking their questions.
It was important to ensure the application was a safe forum for everyone so the backend was constructed to provide granular control for handling anti-social behaviour and user self reporting as well as providing real time feedback on application usage and tending topics.
