“The best thing to do is create a simple “Coming soon” page to notify visitors of what will eventually be there. ” -Cameron Chapman
The next step for us is to create a good landing page that is eye catchy and pleasing but informative enough to attract viewers to sign up their email.
A good link to read (and where the quote came from): Designing “Coming Soon” Pages by Smashing Magazine.
At the same time, we wanted something different but simple enough that it can also be used when the app is out with a “download in the app store” logo.
Callum Chapman, our UI/UX designer brainstormed with us for a while to see if we could get something stylish and that fits our app.
The choices were:
We decided to use the dark color background of a city (its actually Shanghai), we blurred it out and added glowing elements to the page. The visual elements are that if you hover your mouse over an icon, it glows, and the arrows are to show the different page previews of the app.
So now, all we have to do is let Callum’s web developer to code it and voila! Landing Page done.
(Few days later…)
