thomasmeilandt got their new app design by running a design contest:
YOLO: Draw a clear and beautiful mobile experience for local event discovery

Entertainment & The Arts
The process for event-discovery is broken. Most customers rely on a small subset of friends to cue them in on fun experiences. The customers that actively stay on top of events in their city or neighborhood spend hours every month trawling through local newspapers, cafe bulletin boards, or specific local organizations they trust - and still miss out on experiences they would have loved. The purpose of "Yolo" is to enable people with a seamless and simple way to discover experiences in their city - so they can spend less time looking and more time experiencing.
Our visual style should present a minimal UX and project "trustworthy", "convenient", and "knowledgeable, but humble". Choices in colors, textures, shapes, photography, illustration and typography should be guided by these four tenets: (1) Minimal UX: We believe in putting content first, and prioritizing useful information over unnecessary embellishments. Our ideal design will make for a quick and easy method for customers to discover experiences and make the decision of whether to go. (2) Trustworthy: Picking what to do with our free time, for many is a process driven by emotions and habits. Inviting Yolo into this, presumes a level of trust that it will deliver on what I need, to make a decision. Our visual design should help establish that on first look. (3) Convenient: Our customers are always on the go. Our visual design should strike the right balance of clarity and beauty across the app. (4) Knowledgeable but humble: The landscape for events is extensive and we want customers to feel that we help them know just enough, without pretending to know-it-all
We will need visual designs of three of the five screens illustrated in the attached draft UX wireframe (wires3.pdf) 1) Top picks/everything: This is the home of the app, and defaults to displaying the top picks to the customer based on her current location. Each line-item will include following information for an event: (1) a high-resolution image, (2) event title, (3) event time, (4) venue, (5) price , and (6) category. See attached example (top-picks.png) for a yelp-inspired wireframe of this screen - we are hoping for something much more beautiful, that retains the clarity of the yelp-list. The persistent bottom action on this page allows customers to toggle to an "everything" view that also enables the filters described in #2 below. 2) Common Filters: This is the place a customer goes to filter the "everything" list. A customer can filter based on four categories (time, neighborhood, price and category) and one toggle (kid friendly), or choose to see everything available to her. See wires3.pdf attached for details on the interaction. We are going for simple and very quick here. One of our favorites in this space would be the Yelp filtering experience (yelp-filters.png attached for inspiration), and we are hoping for something as simple, that hits all our filtering needs 3) Event Detail: This page is a detail-page of the event once selected from one of the Top List/Everything lists described in #1. The detail-page includes images, event title, time, distance, price, venue, category, kid-friendly indicator/badge, description, directions-button (opens maps app). The persistent actions at the bottom of this page are: "Add to calendar" and "Share"
