BACKGROUND

A great solution app to ensemble all your social accounts into one profile and eliminate the search process when connecting with others. Tie your social accounts to your Let'sFriend account and find nearby people using the app, easily connect with them with one tap. You can also choose for each connection what accounts to connect with a specific person.
ONE TAP OR CHOOSE WHAT TO CONNECT

Super easy to connect instantly with every social account in one tap. Connect multiple accounts like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. and select only the one you'd like to connect with someone.




STORY-ARC DIAGRAM

An app that simplifies the connection process. Sync all of your social and business accounts into your profile then connect all with only one tap. Can't be easier than this.
ICON DESIGN + ALIGNMENT PROBLEM

Below, you can see how the center of the shape is slightly lowered (left side) because a perfect centering would make the shape appear slightly lifted. Because our eyes are deceptive it has to be optically adjusted for the eye and not just mathematically so we make it less centered to feel more centered.

FINAL NOTES

The final screens are a bit different from the initial wireframe. I combined the search and location bars into one, there was no reason to have the accounts listing so big (now it's a 3 collumn grid) and the homescreen is more compact. It only show you and the accounts connected, if there are people ready to connect to, they'll appear around your profile image, a message to inform about those connecttion and a quick "connect all" button



Let'sFriend is a very simple app and easy to use.

It was designed in Affinity Designer and Adobe XD for iOS but it's an adaptive design, it doesn't follow much of specific rules to the iOS platform therefore it becomes easily cross-platforming. The colors used are a gradient of Magenta and Violet. Strong colors working great for liquid shapes and super vibrant.

The liquid shapes and the liquid bridge between two profile heads symbolize the conection made or about to be done. A bit of a molecular-like connection or the inverted process of a celule division - where two are about to become one.
