main idea

LinkApp helps you to meet new people, manage relationships, organize events, find things to do and communicate in large groups on the go. With LinkApp, you can host and micromanage your party with ease (or find something to do on the map if you’re bored), get a cute date for the night while you’re at the mall, stay in the loop on what your friends are doing through the map, or talk with your neighbourhood through a GeoChat.

project timeline

The development process in MAVINX is splitted into 4 stages. We're starting with the Business Analysis where we identify the requirements and convert it into the technical documentation and working prototype. The next stage is always about the Visual Component of the project where we're working on the UI design and Brand Identity. Then the project planning starts and Development team joins the process. The app is constantly tested by QA team. Finally, when the app is polished and approved by client, we're taking care of the project release to the App Store and Play Market.

wireframing

During the Wireframing stage our main UX focus was put on building the most user friendly navigation so the users could easily switch between maps and Geochats, join and create their own events, see people nearby and get new connections.

Branding

logo

The Exclusion Zone ensures the legibility and impact of the Logo by isolating it from competing visual elements such as text and supporting graphics.


This zone should be considered as the absolute minimum safe distance, in most cases the Logo should be given even more room to breath.


The exclusion zone is equal to “L” mark for the logo.

colors and font

Three main colours of LinkApp are: Green, Dark Grey and White. Use Green for main elements on the screen, CTA buttons, contrast elements, illustrations etc. White for the main background. Dark Grey for typography.

visual design

Since LinkApp main idea is to connect like-minded people based on their interests, we chose green as a main color of the app design. Green is about energy, fresh ideas, willingness to open new things. The overall aesthetics are minimalistic and clean. It keeps users focused on the core features of the app.
