Leica partnered with Little Voice to create a new camera companion app for all Leica digital camera models. The new app allows Leica users to remotely control their camera to capture photos and then transfer them seamlessly to their mobile device. I worked crafting the initial concepts and then creating a visual design system for the iOS and Android apps.
We crafted the visual design to be in sync with Leica’s industrial design, subtly referencing Leica’s iconic red accents and monospaced font.
Connecting a camera was a major pain point for camera app users, so we paid special attention to this task, giving users a full visual reference of the camera they are connecting (with each of the camera models rendered in all their glory) and the steps to follow.
The app enables new scenarios for photographers that can now mount their camera on a tripod and remotely take photos using the same controls and seeing the same iconography that they are already familiar with.
