Based on the target audience, we went for a high energy branding that incites excitement for sports.

Design Strategy

We wanted to provide a gamified experience. Interface was minimalist and consistent throughout the app. The website was much more promotional in character and Administration portal was kept functional and straight forward. Client (representing the audience) approved the wireframes and provided insights we could use to create Mockups.

Development Strategy

We recognised early in our user research and feasibility studies that Kroo Sports will heavily depend on 3rd party integrations for data. It was crucial that our platforms did not become a hurdle when integrating. We went ahead with native app development with Swift and Java for iOS and Android. Kroo Sports relied heavily on notifications to promote its features (Daily Games and announcements). We wrote custom libraries to provide extended real-time notification capabilities.

PHP and Node.js were selected for developing the Website and Administration portal. We used Amazon AWS for cloud deployment with elastic on-demand scaling of resources as needed.
