One of the project concepts I introduced while at Oracal was a mobile app. Once the project was approved, we contacted Smack Dab Studios to help us develop the app—and they have done a tremendous job.
For our part, we were tasked with the app design and app content development. In my designs for the app icon and app splash screen, I incorporated our black carbon fiber pattern, which I re-created in Illustrator and Photoshop.
I also created icons for each state to be used in our U.S. distributor locater screen. For the international distributors, I created vector icons of each nation’s flag.
The most tedious part was content management–we wanted each distributor location to be styled a certain way to keep the design cohesive. In the end, it’s worth it.
Currently, the app is developed only for Mac iOS. Go to the App Store and download it. It’s free.
