Create a cool, modern Chinese dating app home screen.
Check out pokng89's App design contest…
Allow customers to browse user profiles. View photos, search for matches, send and receive messages, photos etc. It's a mobile dating app.
**** UPDATE 21/4 Thanks everyone for the submissions. We're mostly just doing surveying now and seeing who's design is best received by the general public. Most designs are pretty much keyed in on what we want. We will go over each one and finalize some details. In the meantime I've uploaded the final screen that's significantly different. It's the matching screen. So the top one is morning person vs night person Second is casual dating vs serious dating Third is fun vs career Fourth is active vs inactive. The black flag is your answer to the question, the pink flag is the answer you would like your match to have. Let me know if it doesn't make sense. Thanks **** UPDATE Have a new screen to show if anyone's keen to give it a go. It's the alternative view to the home screen. It's a list view, because in China there's so many people it would be very tedious to go through profiles one by one. Your call on how many profiles to show on the screen etc. Thanks for all the designs. **** Can we try a better integration of the buttons. The message and like/save button. I'm not a huge fan of how I've done it with it sitting below the photo wasting space. If we could integrate it into the photo or something I think that would be better. ***** Also so the thing as well. This isn't a hook up application, nor is a marriage application. So the Chinese dating market really has two clear directions at the moment. Hook up (Tinder style) or super serious marriage application. Mimi is bordering in the middle. So it's gotta keep a cool youthful look, but not be sleazy or casual. I don't know if that information helps at all, but I thought I'd give a bit more insight to our company vision or direction. It's a Chinese application, that shouldn't change much as text is programmed in and the logo can still be creative and use English characters. Cool, sleek vibrant colors. Nothing too cheesy or too romantic, such a deep red colour scheme. We want to keep it modern and cool. Don't want it to be an outdated dating app. Check a concept design I drew below for our pitch deck. I thought it was an okay idea a play on Tinder (I have no graphical design background as you can probably tell) and it has actually turned out to be quite poor design. I liked having the next and previous profiles partially show up but its been quite a waste of space and it doesn't really give the user anything. It doesn't show enough for them to want to swipe next and not close the app. Designs that show 2 profiles showing instead of 3 work much better than my original design. So for that one I would remove the upper partial profile photo, as that adds nothing. Enlarge the main profile showing and have a smaller secondary profile at the bottom. This in my opinion, would entice the user to keep swiping and keep the app open. Again, be creative and back yourself, but my non-expert opinion, is my transparent 3 profile design doesn't work. 2 profiles seems the way to go, or another method you suggest. BUT DEFINITELY go and back yourself in and do your own thing. Does not have to be anything like what I envisioned. I'm quite open to this, any questions just feel free to ask. And definitely feel free to try your own designs.
Mimi (It translates from xunxunmimi, Chinese idiom meaning looking and searching)
Let's start with home screen then we'll see what else we need designed. Later on we need a logo as well. Check the drawing I drew. That's not a concrete design. The functions are there, those are set but that's a rough sketch I drew for our BP. Similar to a Tinder style but there's an updown slider. I want to keep the up-down slider and also the semi-transparent photos of previous and next profiles. If you really think you have a creative idea that works, back yourself in and submit it. It can be completely different from how I envisioned it, as long it keeps similar functionality. So what you need to be able to navigate to User profile, next profile, chat list, settings screen, save/like user, message current profile. That should be all.
What to avoid
Overly cute or romantic. Using ridiculously good looking people for profile photos. Oh hopefully use some Asian people seeing as it's a Chinese dating app. Also minor detail, I did this on our design, but we've decided to not show distance between matches. I had 0.8km on our design, no need for that to be displayed, but no biggie if it is. Also a better use of the message and like buttons. I like it when it's more integrated maybe on the photo or something. Not a separate ugly button that sticks out underneath like I have it.
