J & J got their new app design by running a design contest:
SUPER SIMPLE APP (OPUS Classical Mood Player)
Check out J & J's App design contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
This is an easy one: This application is meant to function as the most easy-to-use app ever. Press an icon, and corresponding music (classical) plays.Share, buy or "like" the music. Enjoy!

Icons: Good looking mood icons. Six of them, filling up the entire screen. Colourful Simplistic Preferable symbols rather than just "faces" ....however Feel free to mix between personified icons and symbolic icons depending on what is more fitting. Example "groovy" could be person dancing while "sleepy" would work nicely with a bed, moon and stars (with no person in it).One color per mood/icon is an idea we'd like to explore. Materials/background:Modern looking, but it's music and it's classical, so hey - if you can mix it up a bit, that would be cool too. Tips: Use classical cd cover icons from Google images to illustrate the player screen.
OPUS Classical Mood Player
Start-up screen: Text "What's your mood?" Logo/name Note: Design this only if you want to - it's not in the actual brief for 2 screens. Brief for the two application function screens Screen 1 : Six icons corresponding to a mood. Preferrably 2x3 icons. *Happy *Sad (as in down, heartbroken, depressed...)*Romantic (sexy time) *Sleepy (bedtime music) *Energetic (sporty, active) *Groovy (party music) Screen 2: Smart, sleek player view. Streaming classical music plays Album cover (click to enlarge and display info and complete album playlist below). Icon to corresponding mood displayed in some smart way in order to show what mood the playlist is playing. Buttons on Screen 2 "Player controls": Simple and easy to touch for also elderly fingers...possibly enlarged when pressed/touched *Play/Pause *Trackscroller (fwd/rwd) *Volume *Next Track *Prev. Track "Change mood": top left to go back and change mood "Like": Facebook "Share": Pop-up to choose where to share to (twitter/fb/sms/email) Choose between sharing complete mood playlist or current track "Buy": Exactly what it sounds like, via iTunes "Skip": If you're sick and tired of a suggested track, button for "Skip" and the player remembers the tracks you don't like (the list of "no-no tracks" can be reset in settings) Scroll down to read about the piece/and or composer.
What to avoid
Don't be too serious - this app should be fun, and make the user smile at the icons, yet think that it all looks very stylish. Please avoid any kind of "smiley"-related icons and cartoon styles Also, avoid too small icon texts - the app will be used by older people too.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their app design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
J & J collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
