This project sprung out of my love for traveling, the premise of "Welcome" is to offer solutions to three essential needs travelers have while visiting a new place: transportation, staying, and food. I designed "Welcome" as a platform to find these services safely and for free. I know it may sound like a lot for a single app, but I know people–travelers–already find these services through other applications and believe it or not, for free. Relying in a rating system, identity verification, and of course the kindness of people. I would like 'Welcome' to be one small community that exchange these services safely and for free.
The experience of looking for these three services ought to be simple and easy. From the rating system, with simple five starts, to open and transparent visible reviews.
The branding was something I also kept simple and legible. I wanted, aesthetically, the color palette to be a combination of neutral hues of warm and cold colors. Something suitable to the mood in which travelers find themselves when visiting new places, exciting yet calm. I think the colors of the map pins echoes this idea.
