BUZZi Visual Identity + Rewards Event

in #buzzi7 months ago (edited)

Thank you to everyone that has signed up to become a BETA tester. We received a lot of feedback and appreciate the support and interest in our project.

We have now switched our status to open BETA testing so anyone can download our app at the Google Play Store. To show our appreciation to our community we will be launching a Rewards Event which you can read more about at the end of the article.


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:!/?view.left=0&view.right=0

Looks like the Beta is only related to Kids products. Any idea when this will open up to a full range of products?

Right now we are focused on Baby and Kids products. But we do have plans to open the categories to a full range of products. We will make sure to keep our BUZZi community updated on any new developments.

Signed up for the beta program, let me just download it now.

We have changes our status to open beta testing so you can now download the app at the link above in our article.

As a designer and advertiser, I'm enthralled by the thought process behind the image that businesses go for and why. I am impressed about your font choice and reasoning.

You have some good thinkers back there.

Look forward to seeing your posts!

I sent a post about the baby's need to supplement zinc in the summer last night. It has not been reviewed yet. In order to avoid being considered as plagiarism, I took a photo with BUZZI again this morning, but since the BUZZI APP can't update the photo, please help me change the photo.微信图片_20190730082503.jpg微信图片_20190730082508.jpg

Thank you for your message and creating new images to ensure that your content is authentic. Please create a new post to upload your new images and share your experience.

Additionally, here are some tips on how to create engaging content on BUZZi:

• Post lifestyle photos with the product in use, rather than just a picture of the product. Community members benefit from seeing how products are used in daily life!

• Video content is more engaging. Types of video content to upload are unboxing, how to’s, product reviews, or videos showing the product being used.

• Be honest with your product reviews. Don’t feel like you have to give the best score or have to only list the “Pros” of a product. Giving an honest review will allow our community members to find the best product for them.

Then, if you don't mind, please help me see the post I just sent, and its first picture is not shown.微信图片_20190730085911.png

Thanks for your message. The first picture should be showing now. Please take a look and let us know if you need any further assistance.

Congratulations @buzzi!
