DESIGN

The design was predicated on those findings. The colors selected were mossy gold (#007eff), white (#FFFFFF), and black (#333437). These colors were chosen for their high contrast and readability, but also for giving a feeling of excitement and adventure inherent in scavenger hunts.

The app’s typography plays a huge part in presenting information in a legible and appealing manner. We decided to go for “Helvetica Neue”, both in bold and regular versions, to ensure an optimal balance of readability and modern design.

Discovery

In the early stage, we focused on understanding the key persona – corporate team members who want to have a fun, engaging, and rewarding team-building experience. User interviews and focus groups gave us valuable insights into their needs and preferences.

Development

The final app’s design was created using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe XD, and Adobe Illustrator. The aim centered around providing a seamless experience. Every clue, every task, every community event was woven into the app’s journey to provoke curiosity and challenge users, making their team-building adventure memorable.

OUTCOME

Scavenger Ox has transformed how team-building events are conducted. Collaboration, commitment, and communication among team members have been greatly endorsed by the concept of an app-supported city-wide scavenger hunt. Every location, clue, and task is carefully chosen and designed to assure an immersive and enjoyable experience.

We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished with Scavenger Ox, delivering a unique product that stands out in the world of corporate team-building events.
