I can't not animate, so I added this funky gif behind the player hero that grooved along with each artist track!

The Funk Parade is one of DC’s coolest events. It’s a multi-day celebration of the spirit of funk and nod to the deep heritage of jazz in the District. With street festivals, a mighty parade and nightly music & dance parties, they needed a mobile app to showcase events, venues, artists and share the schedule for party-goers. The app also contained a featured artists  playlist that could be played natively in the app itself!

The theme for 2017’s event was “Future Funk” which gave me a lot of fun(k) vibes to work with!

Inspo pulled from Snapchat to give a raw, grassroots feel; and Spotify to provide a solid, familiar experience for the music player.

The ‘mint chip + magic slices’ visual approach was a huge hit—and artist approved!

The extra sweat & tears put in to make sure this app felt cool enough for the event it was representing, were definitely worth it!

While 2017 was the original version, the app has been reused for two additional years running, being reskinned for each year’s theme. Long live the Funk Parade!

Much exploration & troubleshooting went in to making sure the animations were seamlessly integrated into the app without too much lift on the part of the engineers.
