Tripwarriors.com is an upcoming social media application for high-intensity travelers. Development of the application is underway for beta launch in December 2010.
Age 25-45 who are intensively mobile and are active users of Location Based Social Media services such as foursquare and Gowalla.
Require a set of badges to be used as awards for a social media travel game where users compete to show that they have travelled the most in their category.
The eight categories are:
Air, Car, Taxi , Motorcycle, Train, Bus, Foot, Bicycle.
Each category will include a Global and a Friends ranking (i.e. how you rank against all users and users that you have designated as Friends) . The default will be a Friends ranking. The Global ranking should be the same as a Friends ranking but with the addition of a common sub-logo that designates it as Global for a total of sixteen unique graphic items.
The look should be modern, fun and surprising – something that user will be proud to receive and want to share with their friends.
To understand the concept better, similar type awards concept would be Gowalla.com or foursquare.com.
The shapes should be square.
Avoid overly complex designs - keep them clean, fresh and fun.
