Goodvite is a mobile application built for Apple iMessage that allows users to send and receive invitations - no need to register, signup for an account or pay.
eTecc / Interactive built a custom mobile application for iMessage. We knew the true challenge was going to be serving users who hadn't downloaded the app, but had received an invitation. So eTecc also crafted a web API to deliver invitations to users without the app.

We believe receiving invitations should be fun and we believe they should make you smile. To that end, we designed Goodvite to be friendly by crafting delightful illustrations and bold colors.
eTecc used design to indicate the user experience of Goodvite. Iconography indicates how users download, select an event date and craft a message. Invitation distribution among your guests and recipient confirmation/RSVPs are visualized graphically to walk new users through the application flows.
We selected the ubiquitous envelope icon to represent the Goodvite identity. A subtle reference to the iMessage™ chat bubble in our design further indicates the mobile texting nature of the product. Blue tones embolden the design while communicating a sense of calm and stability.
Sketching The Interface →
Goodvite is designed to uniquely accommodate both the message bubble and application drawer within iMessage. This was a unique challenge when crafting the interface and maintaining a simple and delightful user experience. We leveraged Sketch™ to rapidly iterate through a number of layout concepts before finalizing a design.
Goodvite needed to work for both users with the application installed and for those who do not. It needed a robust and scalable API to power invite functionality across the app and on the web - allowing receipts of a Goodvite to RSVP without downloading the app.
eTecc leveraged Laravel™ to craft our web API, whipped up custom graphics and illustrations in Sketch™ and coded it all up using Swift™. See below:
