CollegeCribs

State-of-the-art property search
app that connects students & landlords

Whether you’re a student looking for accommodation or a landlord wishing to list their spare bedroom, CollegeCribs has got you covered. It is a leading accommodation search service for students and landlords in Ireland. We were asked to refresh its brand and website, turning it into a modern web application based on the latest technologies. We focused on both the appearance and experience and redesigned the app from the inside out. New information architecture and user-focused features help CollegeCribs attract new users and business.

From redesigned logo to brand colors to custom illustrations, we designed a fresh new look & identity that appeals to all groups of CollegeCribs users and customers.

Visual Design

We selected colors that refer to the brand’s previous palette but take it to a completely new level. Tens of icons and illustrations help the site stand out and bring in new users.

UX Design

UX Design

We analyzed the brand’s current website and engineered a whole new structure designed to improve every bit of experience: from speed to user flow and information architecture.

Development

Development

After designing the app, we began coding it using the latest technology. Every implement part of the site has been thoroughly tested to ensure best possible experience.

COLOR PALETTE

Designed to appeal to college
students and landlords.

We based our choice on scientific research: according to recent study, green and purple are two of the most preferred colors among young people.

We split the palette in half, with the energetic green being directed at students and purple aimed at landlords and business communication. Green is also the key color of the original CollegeCribs palette. The new design builds upon existing brand and takes it to a new level.
