Beds on Board

UI design for a web app that connects boat owners with accommodation seekers


Beds on Board helps owners of boats rent them out to people looking to have a holiday on a boat, similar to Airbnb but on the water. Working with Roll Studio, I was brought in to help devise the UI style for Beds on Board. I started out by creating a styleguide. I chose nautical colours to fit with the theme, but added a pastel hue to them, to make it feel more light friendly. We didn’t want the Boat owners or people looking to rent a boat to feel worried. As this was mobile first, and there was a lot of information that we needed to fit within one screen, I then focused on a suitable icon library. Icon’s would play a key part within the design, as we would be able to use them in place of copy, thus saving space. Take a look through the designs and feel free to visit the website and find your next holiday on a boat. Because lets face it, being on a boat you feel pretty forking cool!
