Stealth start up
We're a prominent stealth start up backed by experienced entrepreneurs launching a completely new way to motivate people to get fit and stay fit. To see one of our previous companies, check out ilovephotos.com.
We believe that every person in the world deserves to lead a healthy life and to that end we're working towards making the world a fitter place.
You can be part of this by designing a key part of our platform to motivate people to get in shape.
25 - 40 year old young professionals who are comfortable with social media. The kind of person who might use Foursquare, Groupon, or Yelp.
We aim to be a leading fitness social network on the web.
We're looking for someone to design a suite of badges people can earn for doing different fitness activities - similar to foursquare badges. Ultimately, we're looking to create about 60 - 80 different badges. We're looking for the right designer to design all of them.
For this project we'll start with 8 badges for the following actions:
- You completed your first fitness activity
- You played volleyball
- You did 3 activities on 3 consecutive days
- You did an activity early in the morning (early bird activity)
- You did a cardiovascular activity
- You did a co-ed sport
- You failed to show up for an activity (negative)
- You did an activity in the water
We're looking for badges that are simple, colorful, playful, and really well designed. These are "virtual rewards" that people will want to collect - so they have to be really fun to look at.
As an example you can look at the list of foursquare badges here: http://thekruser.com/foursquare-badges/
Here is another example with a pretty good description of how badges are used: http://www.allfacebook.com/2010/05/…-facebook/
Our badges need to be roughly the same size as the foursquare badges however you are free to play with the form factor - they don't have to be circle if you think you have a better idea. They can be flat, three dimensional, textured, beveled, your choice - as long as they're fun and you'd want to collect them yourself!
