doubleTwist is a household name in Android media players. For its next generation media player with support for cloud-based music services, doubleTwist hired Pictogram to assist in a full Google Material Design-style user interface and icon design.
As a new product, the CloudPlayer application needed a fresh brand and new iconography to convey its purpose as a lightweight, brand-new music player for Android.
Out of several dozen concepts we selected an icon that brings together visual elements that suggest playing music and media, interconnectedness and air-like lightness.
The final design is a Reuleaux triangle, which is a unique shape that fits perfectly into a circle at any orientation and suggests the shape of a ‘play’ glyph in a unique way.

The user interface design of CloudPlayer uses the newest technologies in the Android SDK to color the CloudPlayer user interface with colors depending on the user context and album artwork, as well creating smooth animations for actions and seamless transitions between different areas of the application.
