The context of the project

I was approached by one of the product owners for design consultation on a brand new startup. Their soon-to-be launch product, PopUpPoint, is an app that intends to introduce all pop-up stores in the Netherlands.

The product owner noticed that opening pop-up stores is an onward trend in the retailing industry, and platforms that integrate information from different retailers are missing in the market. Plus, the few competitors fell short on delivering strong identity and strategy that retains the customers.

As such, my initial responsibility was to create a brand identity that embodies the company's ethos and differentiates it from the later competition.

Brand identity

The target group of this app is hipsters who are usually young, entrepreneurial and fond of latest trend and fashion. Therefore, the app must bring fun, fresh and breezy feelings. The style must be sleek and elegant.

App

The product owner came to me with a very clear idea about the features of the app. For the first release, the requirement was quite simple – basically a clear and appealing presentation of the selective information that is most relevant for users.

Within time and budget constraint, the flow was structured fairly quickly after investigating the requirements and competitors' products. My effort was mainly put into creating stunning visuals that stand out from the current market.
