Design Tag Designs

Light and airy space like a crafts artist's studio

By giving the application a hip, crafty, do-it-yourself feel we invite the user to be creatively active. We compliment the submissions with the aesthetic but do not distract from the work. It needs to be usable, but also inspiring. Since Design Tag is an image-dominant application, the interface must be

complimentary and unobtrusive to the imagery. The simple style will emphasize the images by not detracting from them, and the soft colors will highlight the crafty mood. With all of this together, we create the perfect fun-loving, stylish app for artists to fill with bold visuals.

Simple, unique interactions within the application give an extra level of detail that adds so much more to the overall experience of a user. Dragging and tagging is a quirky and fun gesture, without being over the top.

Users can press and drag from the "Tag" button onto any set of challenge submissions to save that challenge. Tapping on the button opens the Tag page where users can see their saved challenges or create their own.
