Professional photographer, Sharon Latham, has travelled the globe taking official photos of Manchester City Football Club, music artists including The Stone Roses, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Muse and Bon Jovi, and seen her media published on the BBC, ITV and Sky.
During her travels, she noticed something: too many people can’t take a good selfie.
Whilst many people had the same idea, there were very few who took the best shot possible.
With strange angles and bad lighting littered across the internet, Sharon had the idea of creating an app that would help people to take that perfect, Instagram-ready image.
In 2017, she approached us with this idea, the drive to make it happen, and backing from England international footballer, Joe Hart, with whom she met during her time at Manchester City Football Club.
What we did
We delivered every element of the Selfie Guide app, including initial idea conceptualisation, design, development, testing, branding and logo creation, App Store submission and optimisation.
We started with several workshops to discuss a variety of concepts and define what the solution should be, and do. Getting developers, designers and the founder into one room allowed them to bounce around ideas of what was and wasn’t possible.
Sharon then travelled across the globe covering 22 locations in 6 months; on her return, she fed all the data she had collected back to our team, who analysed it before feeding it into the design.
So now, when a user downloads the Selfie Guide app, they can select their location, receive directions on how to reach the perfect selfie spot, choose which overlays and filters to use, before sharing on their favourite social media channels.
The app does the hard work to enable the user to do what they expect: point, shoot, and create the perfect selfie.
We provide ongoing support ensuring that the app is maintained, updated and future-proofed against further operating system releases.
