Watt

/ Problem /
Design a music app for bike messengers that caters to their specific needs.

/ Solution /
Watt is a stripped-down music app with day/night modes, curated playlists, user music library, and a simplified now-playing screen that is easy to operate while in motion.

Bright day mode makes the screen clearly visible under direct sunlight, and night mode preserves the user's night vision when he turns his attention back to the road.

The user can toggle between curated playlists and personal music library, indicated by the active state bar below each icon. The now-playing screen can be accessed at any time from either screen.
