Night Social App by Katerina Maniataki

Katerina Maniataki of Tapely‘s the NIGHT app is an experimental project that arose after a lot of brainstorming sessions and iterations on their brand orientation. It is a social app where the user can log-in only during the NIGHT time and post his thoughts, feelings or mood. The end post is a combination of text, image and music expression.

The final design of ‘Night Social App’ is the product of an amazing team, Tapely. It is a collaborative work. I was honored to lead the team through collaborative design practices, I collected their feedback and improved the UI & UX of the product in small iterations. I am trying to combine all my experience acquired through all these years, with images from my everyday life in Athens.

Almost every evening I had the same routine: I used to take a walk and gather inspiration from buildings and city lights. Then, I engaged in discussions with friends and tried to translate their needs into an end product.

Night Social App has a well thought, user-centric design and I strongly believe that this is what makes it unique. Focus on collaboration, amazing things may come out after some brainstorming sessions!
