TwoCan

The collaborative list app to get your sh*t together

Internal Project

www.twocan.app

TwoCan is a collaborative list sharing app where you can invite friends to add or tick-off items as a team. And it’s not just for the supermarket run; TwoCan helps with holiday planning, work schedules, party-prepping – pretty much anything. 

Add, create, swipe, done. It’s that easy. TwoCan allows friends, family and colleagues to chip-in and share the load. When the sun’s out and the rush for hotdog buns is on! When you’re the first at the festival campsite and there’s not a tent peg in sight! When it’s Sunday lunch and the horseradish is running low. 

A list shared is a problem halved! 

TwoCan app Logo

A Fledgling Brand

Making collaborative lists with TwoCan is fun and easy. When creating our logo, we had to reflect this visually. The symmetrical, abstract toucan symbol was designed to have a Venn diagram quality suggesting mutual goals.

The brand mark would also have to be identifiable at icon scale and have enough personality to stand out from a saturated screen of apps! For this reason, we employed a bold, simple style of vector illustration combined with a primary palette for maximum recognition and ‘thumb candy’ appeal.

Spreading our Wings

There are games to pass the time on a commute or whilst hiding in the toilet at work but we wanted to build an app that fixed a common frustration. Crowdsourcing tasks or items with a group of friends or family makes life easier, fairer and saves you time.

As a studio we wanted to expand upon our bespoke app building knowledge and produce something intuitive for users of any age or tech proficiency.

Profile Peacocking

When you join the TwoCan family, you are assigned a feathered friend as an avatar. Obviously, you can use your social images too so don’t worry if you’re still using that picture from the late 90s.

Illustrating this set of characters was a fun task for the design team, and a great opportunity to extend the playful visual language, but it also provides the important job of identifying collaborators and improving the user experience.

Big Shop

TwoCan can’t find you a parking space on a busy afternoon and it can’t stop you losing your partner at the end of a supermarket aisle but it can take out the leg work out of the ‘big shop’.

Never forget a key ingredient again, spare yourself the stress of 'popping back out' to the shops! Let your friends and family share the load by crowdsourcing your groceries, delegating the deli run and harnessing super powers in the supermarket.
