03Branding

Logo Artwork

The RecoSpot team wanted to create a unique brand identity that sets them apart from the competition. The designers at AppStudio have created a logo and an app icon keeping the start up vibe in mind. As is evident in the overall UI, AppStudio has opted for something fun and engaging with a white background as the core color and complementary gradients to enhance the look of the app and emphasize the vibrance of user posted images.

04Color palette

The designers at AppStudio made their choice of a color palette with a white background and orange accents, that worked well for creating deep contrast with white active icons.

06App Design

The app was designed keeping in mind that its core user base would be users within the age of 16-30 years. Hence, AppStudio has opted for a clean design with interactive buttons and a two click method to find, select and share a user’s restaurant experience with fellow spotters.
