Rucksack is an upcoming web and mobile application for people who enjoy experiencing a nomadic lifestyle. The challenges that many of these people face include: looking for their next job, meal, and a bed to sleep in. The goal was to create a visual identity that highlights these challenges by focusing on three things: community, outdoors, and location.

community

Rucksack aims to build a community that is solely focused on helping people find their way, and allows you to connect with people who are just like you. Generally, Rucksack could be described as a combination of Yelp and Airbnb, but for people who enjoy living and travelling via backpacking – always on the move and ready for their next adventure. The target audience is men and women, ages 18-25.

Our initial visual ideas revolved around mountain ranges, people, and social connections. Nomads spend most of their time outdoors, and we wanted to dial in on that nomad/nature connection. For inspiration, we gathered images of landscapes, forestry, and items that signify travel (ahem: rucksacks). How could we take this generic word, and create a brand? What would set it apart? How could we transform this into something that signifies a specialized service?

moodboard_rs

When reviewing our moodboard, the idea of "mountain people" arose. You might think of someone who is alone in the wilderness, isolated from society. Instead, I wanted to capture the idea that this nomadic lifestyle is not one of solitude, but one immersed in a deeply supportive community.

Two mountains side by side was where the idea began. To drive the community aspect further, why not make the mountains into people? As we moved from pen and paper into digital sketches, we explored multiple ways of forming a relationship between the elements. Below, I’ve shared the evolution of the variations we tested from start to finish.

We selected vibrant greens and dark blues to represent the two major characteristics of the planet we live on: land and sea.

We developed multiple options for product iconography for Android and iOS that respectively follow each operating system’s design language, and implemented user interface iconography throughout the application. As Rucksack nears launch, this icon library will continue to grow.

Social media marketing wasn’t forgotten. We created a mobile advertising campaign for sponsored posts on Instagram. A series of ads featuring Rucksack’s "Do more than explore" tagline – a reminder that no matter where you are on your journey, there’s a community supporting you.
