Today we wanted to share a little more about our visual identity and our thought process behind our concept and design. We hope this will give you a little insight into BUZZi and inspire you when creating your posts.
BUZZi’s Visual Identity
When creating the design for BUZZi we wanted to focus on the feeling of sharing stories and memories. We were inspired by the design trends of the 50s and 60s as this retro design concept gives a sense of memory and nostalgia, bringing an emotional piece to BUZZi.
This is why we have chosen to show our posts as a Polaroid picture. The Polaroid carries a nostalgic feeling we wanted our users to feel as they share their experiences and stories. Our goal was the have a retro feel but make sure to still stay modern.
We chose to use yellow as our main color for BUZZi Kids as this brought a sense of happiness and soft yellows are often associated with positivity, energy and gender neutrality.
Primary Color: YELLOW
Secondary Colors: GREY, BLACK, WHITE
We are using Roboto for Android. We chose to use Roboto as it has four families, multiple weights, easy readability and we feel is welcoming.
For the title of the post, we wanted to play even more with the feeling of nostalgia and the Polaroid so we chose the Kalam font available on Google Font, which is similar to handwriting. Everyone remembers writing a little note about the moment at the bottom of a Polaroid picture and we wanted to give that feeling when users create a post.
Lastly, we’d like to thank the team behind the Google Material Design for sharing their knowledge and insights so we can make the best product. It has been a fantastic resource for us along the way.
We picked our colors through their color tool: https://material.io/tools/color/#!/?view.left=0&view.right=0
To evaluate and identify the best color contrast we used https://colorable.jxnblk.com/.
