A single event app contains the content of your event and should reflect the event branding through the artwork and colours. Following our guidelines to create your artwork, ensures that images in your app will appear optimally across different devices and screen sizes.
This page contains information about:
- App icon
- Google Play Store images
- Welcome screen
- Confirmation and password reset emails
- Invite emails
- Intro page
- News feed background
- News feed banners
- Floor plans
- Carousel images
- Company images
- People images
IMPORTANT: To maximise the app's performance and speed, images should be below 1MB, but preferably as small as possible. If both JPG and PNG are allowed, use JPG when the image is photographic, and PNG for graphics and text. To convert one to the other, go to png2jpg.com or jpg2png.com. To compress large images (PNG or JPG), use compresspng.com or tinypng.com.
The app icon is the visual anchor for your app. It should reflect your Society app, while remaining sharp and legible at a small scale. Because iOS and Android crop icons in a different way, two different icons are needed to make sure it looks good on both platforms. For iOS, only the corners are rounded. For Android, a mask is applied and more of the original image is cropped. Try to make your artwork no bigger than 600 x 600px and align it in the center of the image.
Both images should be PNG, and should have no transparency or shadow.
- icon_iOS | 1024x1024px.
- icon_Android | 1024x1024px.
Google Play Store images
To submit your app to the Google Play Store, create the following images that represent your app. The image be PNG, and should have no transparency or shadow. Please note that the corners of the square icon image will be automatically rounded, so important information should be kept from the edges.
- icon_square_512x512 | 512x512px
- feature_graphic | 1024x500px
The welcome or splash screen is displayed while the app opens and loads its content. The length of time for which it appears depends on the size of the app and the speed of the device.
The welcome screen is composed of a square logo (see dashed line in the image below) on top of a background color. Make sure the logo has transparency, so that it looks good on the background color.
- welcome_screen_logo | 1024x1024px
- background color | hexadecimal color, e.g. #FFFFFF
Confirmation and password reset emails
If you're allowing your users to log in to the app with their email address, you can brand the emails that are sent. These are the mail to verify a user's email address or to reset their password. You can set a header image and an accent color, used for titles, buttons and links.
- society_header | 900x300p
- accent color | hexadecimal color, e.g. #FFFFFF
If you're using the invite feature from the attendee list, you can brand the emails that are sent. You can set a header image and an accent color, used for titles, buttons and links.
- invite_header | 900x450px
- accent color | hexadecimal color, e.g. #FFFFFF
An intro page is displayed when an event is opened. The duration can be configured.
