Daan Grasveld got their new app design by running a design contest:
POPPED Music needs a creative that truly understands intuitive simplicity
Check out Daan Grasveld's App design contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
POPPED is an app that makes music really simple again. The internet is full of songs and complex interfaces, offering an overwhelming paradox of choice. Our app eliminates all of this by offering 5 press 'n play moods that contain instant music to your mood and taste.
Simplicity is key. Forget about all standard music players (menu buttons, artwork, scrobbars and artist / track titles). Think music butler; POPPED serves you music in one click all day long. POPPED could even be a character (the app includes voice-feedback elements). We need a dead-simple interface that's based entirely around an intuitive functionality. It needs to contain 5 moods (focus, relax, hits, feel good, energy) and a play/pause button. Potentially skip and like / dislike buttons, but could be just (screen / remote) gestures too. Simple yet beautiful, accessible, joyful. The way Apple used to design stuff that made sense before you ever used it. Your grandma should be able to use it. Without explanation! Feel free to not use the current logo.
Users first need to log on to Spotify, in one click. We'll work on that screen later. The main screen should be a press-and-play experience where one of the moods can be selected. Player functions should be included, or appear as soon as a mood is selected. Other than that there will be an option to enter 'like mood', which features only those songs you've liked in the past. Also a button to drop down / show features as log-out, settings, terms and additional options. Please note music should always be available within one click, each of the moods! So no in between functions / choices if possible.
What to avoid
Complication. Keep it really, really simple! We know, that's the hardest thing to get right.. :o)

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their app design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Daan Grasveld collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Zoltan is an exceptional designer. He went above and beyond what was expected in terms of professionalism, design sensibility, and a knack for quickly understanding customer-centric UX and UI features. He takes feedback and suggestions well, and, very importantly, does a great job both taking/giving creative and professional direction.
Having worked in Silicon Valley for nearly a decade, I turned to 99designs for a fun side project I was in need of multiple viewpoints on a unique user group's particular set of design challenges, and I couldn't go to my primary designers for. Zoltan was at least as good as some of our top designers, and in some regards a greater pleasure to work with. I'm already working with him on follow-up work, please (don't try to) hire him (away :) !
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
