Chris KW got their new app design by running a design contest:
Create an App Design for a Fun iOS Social App
Check out Chris KW's App design contest…
The app is a photo sharing social media platform that allows users to share their photos containing small logos of their favorite brands and charitable causes.
Simple, clean and fun. Think Google, Snapchat and Yik Yak. Flat design. Mostly white with small functional pops of color. Round photos and logos like snapchat. Should conform to all iOS 9 design standards. I am open to design suggestions! **Main App Theme is an ***Astronaut*** flat design. The astronaut should be incorporated in the design like Snapchats: Ghost and Stars in the background or Yik Yaks: Mountains and Yaks in hot air balloons etc. Fun, but subtle and in the background. -Random fun things like Astronauts on diving boards, riding bikes, playing basket ball. Little rocket ships taking off. Small moons etc. Subtle in the background possibly faded. App should be fun, youthful, trendy and cool. Like snapchat and Yik Yak. Flat Design Please! Color theme: I like blue and white with the occasional accent color. **But I am open to different color themes that you may come up with.**
To switch from screen to screen the user will swipe to the left or right, similar to Snapchat. Use Google-Snapchat and Yik Yak and tinder as your main inspiration. Flat Design UI. Screen 1 UPPER Portion: Needs to function similar to Snapchat's "Stories" page. Specifically the two rows; Discover and Live. One row on top of the other with the logos sliding from side to side. I would need two rows that operate the same way as snapchats. The top row would be entitled "Brands" and the lower row entitled "Causes". Each row needs to have the 10 "pods". Each pod has a logo of either a brand or a charity. Each row should show 4 pods at once like snapchat." The user will be prompted to choose one "pod" from each of the rows. When each logo "pod" is clicked I want it to shadow and have a check mark over it. Check mark font similar to apples OS X style, thin and modern. Under one logo from each row I want there to be the word, "Trending" or "Popular" to let the user know which choices are popular at that moment. I like the way snapchats brand logos and user pics are round, so lets stick with that round theme. **Page 1 needs to have a search button and a Sign up with Facebook button. Also a button called my friends. Ex. (a dropdown showing all of your friends.**) Screen 1 BOTTOM portion: The bottom half is the news feed section, displaying recent photos with attached statuses and comments from your friends. As you swipe up through the news feed the Brand and Causes board should slide up and vanish. This now allows you to scroll freely up and down with out the board returning. To bring the board back down I want there to be a convenient button to click. (Possibly the logo at the top middle of the app?) If you have any alternate ideas for this button I'd love to see them. Ease and convenience is key. --Definitely put your own twist on the look and funtionality of this page. Keep it simple, fun and very user friendly. Think Google mixed with Snapchat and Yik Yak inspired UI.-- Page 2: Is the camera page. I want the camera view to be full screen and the photo button to be slightly transparent. **Once the pic is taken the photo button will become a white dot containing both logos from the brand and cause that were chosen on page 1.** The user can drag and place this dot anywhere they'd like on the photo... Make the dot and logos look as nice and as clean as possible. The dot should be either the size of a dime, penny, or nickel on your iPhone. You choose what size you like best. Note the photos will not be full screen in the news feed, they will be scaled down. **There needs to be Social Media integration buttons for Facebook, Instagram and twitter on this photo page. The user should be strongly prompted (but not forced) to share their photo on multiple social media platforms with ease** Then click share button. If you come up with a cool way to feature the brand and cause logos in the photo other than the white dot (which I'm sure you will) I'd love to see it! Such as: **Possibly have a button on camera page to allow the user to pick from a couple different designs to display Brand-Cause logos. Trendy stuff like an outline of a sweater for sweater weather.** Stuff like that! I'm looking for new and creative methods to like a photo. I like how Yik Yak uses arrows and not a heart for likes. Functionality and buttons: Page 1 Brand-Cause Board and News Feed: -Ability to slide- side to side- through all brands in the top row and all causes in the bottom row. Picking one pod from each. Chosen pods will shadow and show a check mark. -Like button and Share button (Share button allows users to share someones photo on the app, Facebook, Instagram and twitter. -Easily scroll through news feed. -Search menu that allows you to easily follow a user by clicking a button like Snapchats + button.. -Hide and show "Brand Cause Board" by scrolling up and reveal by button. -My friends button. Possibly a drop down with friends pics. Feel free to come up with something cool for this. **Swipe left or right to go to different pages.** Page 2 Camera: -Switch from Front/Back Camera view. -Flash on and off. -Photo Library button. -Button to bring "Brand Cause Board" down to change choices while still in camera view page. -User ability to place white dot with logos anywhere on photo. -Ability to easily share photo on multiple social media platforms Facebook and Instagram. -Share button = "Launch" Button --Brand-Cause Board-- **Include these 10 Brands Logos: -Nike -Apple -McDonalds -Samsung -Victoria's Secret -Target -Ford -Coca cola -Pepsi -Toyota **Include these 10 Causes Logos: -ASPCA -Magic Wheelchair -Make A Wish Foundation -American Red Cross -Special Olympics -Wounded Warrior Project -VH1 Save The Music Foundation -Michael Hofflin Foundation -American Cancer Society -Doctors Without Borders
What to avoid
Although I want the flow of the app to function similarly to snapchats UI please avoid creating a snapchat clone. *Avoid altering or changing any colors or designs on the brands and causes logos. Keep it simple, fun and aesthetically pleasing!!

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their app design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Chris KW collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
One of the fastest turnarounds we have seen in the industry, but it does not look rushed at all. Quite the opposite – everything is polished to perfection. Our vision was executed brilliantly and the interface turned out far greater than we imagined. We are officially fans!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
