Clip is a new fun way to share your videos, with music and lyrics! With Clip you can create music videos with overlapping the lyrics of the song you chose. You can share these videos with the app community or on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Texts can be customized to change color and font.

Musixmatch is a music player that shows you song lyrics meanwhile you’re listening to music. You can connect Musixmatch with Spotify, Apple Music and other music services. Musixmatch has a community of contributors from all over the world, that every day sync, add and translate lyrics.

The way the app works

You simply search for a song that you wish to become the soundtrack for your 20 second video or choose one from your phone’s music library. Hold down the record button to film your video. Then, the song’s lyrics can be found in Musixmatch’s database, they become overlaid on the resulting video, from which you can adjust the font and colour. You’re then free to post your video to the Clip app itself and optionally share on social networks.

When you think about a new feature to implement you have to understand the needs of the users. For doing it we analyzed the available data and did research on users through focus group, surveys and user tests.

Lyrics are all about feelings, memories and emotions. They remind us of something and we all connect some songs to our life. We wanted to have an easy way for doing that.

I have created a mind map to define the information architecture and links between the pages. I designed in pencil the basic layout of the app with contents and icons. Then I realised the flow of all the app with which we managed to have a wider overview of the navigation. 

As Clip being a new product, I had to think about the brand and then also about the app icon. Finally, I have prepared the guidelines in which I have collected the colors, fonts, icons and various elements used within the UI.

Creating the guidelines was very important because it helped me make the design process faster.

The App Icon 

Clip_app_icon@2x

When users search for the app in the app store, the first thing they see is the icon. That's why it's very important to attract attention and bring users to find out more about the app.

I tried to keep the icon simple so I started by using the letter "C", using bright colors inspired by our target audience, that is, teenagers.

With the addition of a circle at the top right I wanted to recall the shape of a camera.

As an app that allows you to create a video portrait navigation foresee a vertical scroll. Following some usability tests, we found out that many users did not understand how to navigate the app. Then through the tips and a tour on the screen we explained how to navigate the app.

The flow on which I worked a lot was the one about creating videos. I tried to speed up the process by reducing it to 4 steps: select a song, customize lyrics, record a video, share.

Clip landing page

I worked on several aspects of Clip app, including online communication. I created the visuals for the social campaigns and the landing page on desktop and mobile. I worked with the team that created the official video of the app and the front-end developer.
