Mozart collection companion app
A native iOS app to accompany a major release of Mozart's operas
Agency: WLP & Scramboo
My role: lead UI & UX
To celebrate Mozart's 225th anniversary, Decca Classics and Deutsche Grammophon released a complete collection of his operatic works on an incredible 200 CDs. As a gift to opera buffs, they also commissioned an iOS app containing transcripts of all the works.
Owners of the collection can enter a special code that came with their purchase to access the transcripts.
I designed a user interface that is simple and logical, and visually aligned with the box set packaging.
Upon tapping on one of the homepage icons, the user is presented with a popup containing a list of contents for the work. Where the work contains multiple acts, the individual contents of each act can be viewed.
Tapping on an item takes the user to the relevant transcript. There are three modes for viewing the text:
1. Dark text over a white background (default)
2. Light text over a dark background
3. Live performance mode – with minimal contrast for viewing at performances
There is an iPad version of the app, for more relaxed reading at home.
