Glyco

Glyco is a mobile app born in 2019 that running enthusiasts can use to find, save and share their next run. The app, which is a collaboration between me (designer) and 3 friends of mine (all developers), is already available to download both for iOS and Android.

Glyco aggregates all running events in Italy, no matter the distance, the type of terrain or if they are competitive or not. Users can easily search and find the running competition that best suits their needs by using the filters (date, distance, terrain, etc…) and can save the events they are interested in in a “favorite” section within the app, add them to their personal calendar on their phones or share them with friends.

While working on this project, I tried to apply all the skills I developed during my latest years in terms of UI and UX, trying to study UI and interactions as much as possible. This is an example of a mockup made in Sketch for the “Search” feature:

The project is in constant development and new features will be added soon. Glyco is a side-project I decided to work on for fun, as UI/UX exercise, along with 3 friends of mine (all developers). It is the first mobile app we have ever worked on, so it’s a little bit of an experiment and lots of design decisions, as in every project, have to make a compromise with the technical limitations we meet.

In addition to working on the UI and UX, I created some illustrations and tried to visually define the brand in terms of logo, colors, and style…

…and I helped to build the website, too.
