Having wanted to create a dating app, the intention with Connect dating was and is (as I add more screens) to build a professional dating app that encapsulates all of the best aspects of the online dating world. Many dating apps look cluttered and unprofessional but that’s because they haven’t defined their audience; they haven’t thought about aesthetics which I’ve done here.
Your dating profile is who you are and your background. So this concept simply allows users to present themselves professionally and the readability is clear and well defined. Many apps only place hiearchy on pictures but I believe this to be important as well as a nice photo display.
Using the swipe right/left layout, I’ve designed this component to be easy to view and understand. It’s recognizable but laid out so users can get swiping and matching promptly and with ease.
The login screen should be simple and easy to use. It should never overcomplicate things and should prompt users to do very little. I’ve added a slight touch in gradient and made the logo/identity to-the-point so when users land, they know what this is.
A heart may be overused and as may be the colors, but fact is, they immediately stand out to the user as a dating app. I think without abstracting the design, I’ve conveyed the message as to what this brand is.
