Audience:Instagram Shoppers & Businesses
Intro: People are using Instagram for variety of reasons, one if which is Shopping. Instagram, as a platform, does not fully support Shoppers nor Businesses as many features lack for both sides. oneGram tries to fill this gap by providing a customized Instagram app that focuses on shopping experience.
Challenge: oneGram is an Instagram client. Meaning, it uses all Instagram capabilities and data but with some added features. The design challenge was that oneGram needs to highlight all the new features not available in Instagram while maintaining similar User Experience to Instagram to make its users feeling ‘home’ when using OneGram. Waqood design team had also to ensure oneGram identity is well preserved inside the app as being connected with such strong brand as Instagram.
Result: Waqood design team replaced the bottom tab bar in Instagram app with a top tab barWaqood design team has cleverly overcome the challenge by the following:
- Adapting Instagram timeline style: Since Instagram most used screen is the Timeline screen, the screen style was adapted in oneGram to have a similar User Experience and hence increase app usability measurements.
- Maintaining Android UX guidelines: As we believe that each apps should adapt the platform it operates on, we have applied all UX guidelines from upper the Tab bar to the navigation style.
- Preserving oneGram brand: Waqood has applied the brand colors palette to the app along with the brand font type. The icons shape used in the app has also been designed to serve the brand identity.
