This design study shows an app called Midway – a simple and fun way to find a spot that lies halfway between you and your friends. I created a bold design language underlining the playfulness of the use case and applied a vintage color scheme inspired by maps. Location markers became human because they represent the main purpose of the app – meeting people.
I designed everything from concept to the animated interface. The video below shows an example of three people using Midway. After the locations are set, the app shows the place with an equal distance or travel time for everybody. Small animations keep all interactions cheerful, making sure using Midway feels effortless.
