Jabrutouch is a modern way to learn Gemara and Mishnah. A library of video and audio lessons connected to their page counterparts. People across the world enjoy it for many years already.
Our studio have been working on Jabrutouch for several years (since 2014) and have created several versions of the app. Starting from a completely skeuomorphic app, true to the design trends of the time, moving on to material design, and now: challenging us with recreating the app in slick iOS and material design style.
Out with the old
The first design we have made was scheomorphic in nature, mimicking an actual library of books, remaining close to the world of Talmud study.
The look that came after it, freed itself from the world of books, moving towards material design when it first emerged to the market. While it appeared slick and charming at it’s day - the app needed a whole new approach to bring it forward into 2019.
Meetings with the client polished the plan and made it better adapted to their needs, until we had a final go, and could begin working on the app flow in detail.
The new app ui was designed to be bright, colorful and simple to use.
The app was reworked and made more friendly and bright, supported by colorful illustrations. Separated into four convenient sections (one which was a a new function), the app information is now easier to access - making the learning process more supportive.
The logo needed a fresh look that would still keep on with the previous branding.
After several rounds of user testing - the logo remained nearly the same, with a new fresh twist and a new color scheme.
A set of illustrations was created to fit the app’s new young and vibrant look. Sympathetic characters follow the user across the app, providing a warm feeling to compliment the concise build of the ui.
