Move mountains, move waves

Move mountains, move waves

What was first a small design tweak request turned into a complete makeover of an existing app, leading us to replace poor usability and a crude UI with a fresh interface and intelligent app-flow. We took Bold from a UX audit and niche analysis to complex product development and go-to-market strategy.

  • Project idea

    Bold is an application that helps users “get bold” with the help of meditation and pep talks. Being bold means understanding yourself and fighting against negative thoughts. It brings out your inner strength and makes you more confident mentally and emotionally. The iOS app was made to help people relax with amazing videos, masterclasses, and calming music.

  • Task description

    A client approached us to help animate app screens, carry out a UX audit, and improve the app where necessary. That was the initial task. However, the more time we spent analysing the product the more apparent it became the app needed an in-depth redesign to meet the growing market demand. Starting with a UX audit and carrying it through a complete product makeover, we uplifted the Bold app to new levels, providing users with an interactive interface for their meditation breaks.

Bold process

Mobile IOS app

Once the UX audit was made we found major issues and several missing screens in the UX-flow that ended up making it difficult to interact with the initial app. Our senior development team rethought the app UX and came up with a new unique interface.

Landing page

The custom landing page that was created by our professional team. The landing page delivers the product's core message — stay bold — and it is clear just like the app with all the distinctive graphics and animations. The easy-to-use design helps users get exactly what they are looking for.

How Bold Helped

Identifying the Problems

Our team identified the missing screens while doing the UX audit of the existing app. As a result, we came up with a new interface, thus the app was rebuilt from scratch.

New Identity

The close cooperation with the client led to several important changes from creating a new brand logo to new fonts and color palette. We made sure all screens were consistent in terms of design and go along with the brand's main mission.

iOS app development

Our team created an innovative and vibrant content package for the iOS app. The easy design of the new landing page helped the app to get more leads and aim for higher revenue.

Practical Indulgence

A thorough analysis of existing competitors was made to understand the needs and requirements of the market. We wanted to understand how the Bold app could help users practically. We engaged ourselves and real users in meditation process to get to the core of the client’s idea.

Marketing Strategy

We spared no efforts in developing a marketing strategy. Bold got a complete integration with all the most important social networks, including charity organizations in particular. Brainstorms, open timing, and a time & material approach (T&M) helped us to get the best results for the client.

Bold app is a tool to refine your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual parts until they emerge as one!
