"To organise a match has to be as fun as playing it", that has been the sole reason behind WOOOBA's design, a global platform where users can organise games, find sports facilities, available players and deal online with all the hassle needed to practice sport in real life.
Since early 2014 I've been working on the interface of both web and iOS app for this startup (of which I am co-founder since May 2014). I've been responsible for this immense task of UX / UI, working on the functionality with the rest of the team.
Well focused on the user, simplicity and neutrality are elements that stand out in this design that wants to suit different sports and users.
The current version, at the moment only available for web and iOS, is a reduced product of the multiple functionalities that will be added soon. The map and the user geolocation are the mainstays of the platform, focused on how users will find the closest activities to their location. The project's goal is to encourage more people to practice more sport, that's why the platform is open to people of any level, age and physical condition, allowing them to use the different filters and tools.
Design played much on space to help accommodate multiple languages and future functionality. Of note is the use of colors to facilitate understanding the three pillars of the platform: games / action (orange), players (green) and courts / locations (blue).
The mobile app (iOS only at the moment) has a slightly different approach in order to suit the habitual use of this device, focusing more on the personal areas of the platform.
The prototyping phase lasted several months. We worked with Invision to share and discuss the various proposals and user flows for both web and iOS.
