Client Brief

To make a tech focussed platform for housing transactions in Latin America

Goals

Our broad project goals were to create a platform for housing, to connect serious buyers to serious sellers. This left us room for experimentation, to understand perspectives of a variety of buyers, and also the seller.

Design Direction

The result of the Clasifika design research was a realisation of what the brand should look like - a language that the users could relate to; a feeling of trust they could find in Clasifika. We explored a refined design style, drawing inspiration from one of the most striking aspects of Latin American architecture - the wide array of colours combined with a captivating use of geometrics.

The new iteration included exploration of other interface elements that created a look to support the brand throughout.

Colour Story

We planned to use colours throughout the interface, in a manner that it compliments and blends with both interior and exterior photographs of real estate.

One of the most striking aspects of Latin American architecture is the wide array of colours combined with a captivating use of geometrics. The culture and architecture of Latin America is a great inspiration when we think about colours.

If your visuals aren't backing up the story you are trying to tell, they're not bringing any value to the design.

Typeface

Type tells a story. The right typeface, used consistently, builds character. The Gotham font fuses modern foundational forms with universal functionality. With its broad range of weights, a clear hierarchy of information can be established to extend the typographical scope.

User Study

We conducted systematic study of situations, where the characteristics and behaviour of the users was understood. Picking out elements from these situations, helped us fix priorities of features, to give our users the best experience.

Sketches and Prototypes

Starting with rough interactive wireframes gave us the conceptual framework we needed to build upon. With the goal of prototyping a responsive website, and a mobile application, we started building low-fidelity mockups and gradually went into the details, as we refined the product.
