CONCEPT

Unlike most social media apps, Plip doesn't use hashtags or followers to connect people. Instead, text posts (called "plips") are anchored to a specific coordinate and can only be read by those who are in the immediate vicinity. This way, Plip connects local communities and facilitates dialogue in shared space.

APPROACH

A cool color palette positions Plip within the realm of popular social media giants, while unique shades of blue and purple combine in ways that give Plip a sense of individuality. Plip features fresh interfaces that have obvious roots in existing social media interactions. This introduces new methods of experiencing social content and sharing online while remaining accessible to new users.
