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.
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.
We did not stop after designing the flow and look of the app. Our developers started coding it using the latest technologies: Vue for the front-end and Ruby on Rails for back-end.
