Our design thinking

We wanted to give an NBA-level team feel for the amateur-level teams on the app. So that meant slick visuals, colour schemes and flows. Taking inspiration from the jersey and mascot styles of NBA teams, we created a punchy colour scheme and component library. Next, we undertook a series of trials to navigate the complex UX features of the app.

Finished product

In a short period, we gave this fledgling startup a brand identity and product prototype that propelled Hoops to the same level as more established companies. Investing in design at the beginning stages of a startup is pivotal for a strong launch + obtaining funding.
