Rockerbox is an app that provides unique content from all over the world for 8-11 years old.
The brief was to design an app that would be easy to navigate as a young user, has a fun design and some great features to keep the user engaged.
The biggest challenge was designing an app that a young person who may have just got their first phone can use. We used just three home buttons, a simple search button and easy to access stories.
