Vype is a mobile app that solves the issue of randomized video game matchmaking by providing a simple, easy way for gamers to find other players. Users match with players, track their own stats, and message with friends based on a range of factors.
Vype needed mobile UI/UX and full branding. The app needed to integrate multiple features such as user matching, stat tracking, and a messaging platform. As one of the first custom video game matching platforms, Vype needed to stand out from rest of the gaming landscape with a lighter, more user friendly look and feel.
Clean user interface that combines multiple features such as player matching and user chat // Fun and focused brand identity
The final app design uses the swipe action to match/unmatch with gamers and review other player's stats to determine if it is a good fit. The UI is light and bright to keep the act of matching fun and align with video game landscape, but differentiate from the typical dark-mode UI of gaming platforms.
The logo mark reflects the fun and youthful demographic of the typical Vype user.
