Designed and built a social application for study-abroad students.

The challenge

Borough approached us with a novel concept: a social media platform for students studying in different cities and countries. After a briefing with the client, we dove straight to gathering info and analytics to better visualize which functionalities the product will require. We offered to pilot an MVP on the market, and decided to go for both iOS and Android platforms. Our team constructed a turnkey mobile app, including branding.

The project

Studying away from home for the first time, especially in a foreign country, is a big deal. That’s where we came in. From concept to reality, we built a mobile app for students studying abroad, enabling them to find and chat with people who share their interests, get involved with events, check out their university activities schedule, and so much more. The MVP was launched in UK cities, and we’re exploring the possibility of launching in other countries – with so many great study-abroad options, the audience is constantly expanding.




We identified a list of carriers and prepped materials for print.
