PocketPicks

Prove you know sports!

Background

PocketPicks is a social app for sports fans to compete with one another on NBA, NCAAB, and NHL games.

I first joined the PocketPicks team in its early stages in 2015 as a beta tester. My job included locating bugs and reporting them to the development team.

As the app gained popularity I was asked to redesign the interface from the ground up, preparing the app for the launch of version 2.

PocketPicks is available on the app store now!

original screens


Design

The new look is easy to navigate and fun to use. On the home screen I presented a summary view of all the games and statistics a user creates. On the remaining screens, I translated the existing designs into a more modern look. Some examples of this translation include replacing the "picked stamps" with solid color lines on the side and changing the list view on the friends screen to a more intuitive card interface.

logo design

The original version of the app was solely focused on basketball, but as the functionality progressed, the team wanted a logo that reflected the brand instead of the sport. Similar to the UI design, I decided on a typeface to represent the playful nature of the app.
