Film Friends

I'm a big fan of movies so this was a fun project to spend some time on. My friends and family always ask me for movie recommendations so I thought it would be fun to design an app that would allow me to share my recommendations and for others to do so too.

My Role

This was an idea I came up with myself so I had full creative freedom. I chose everything from the fonts and iconography to the visual layout and the colours.

The Challenge

The main focus of the app is to see what films your friends are watching and which films they recommend.

Main Colours

The Outcome

The main screen shows your list of friends, the ones that have added new films or updated their favourites list will be placed at the top so you’ll always have the latest recommendations at your fingertips. You can also look at your friends all-time favourite films and see if you have similar taste and then you’ll have more confidence in their suggestions.

The actual movie screen gives you information such as the run-time and basic stuff like that but more importantly you can watch a trailer too see if it looks like something you’ll enjoy. Lastly the at the bottom of the screen they’ll be up to 3 links depending if the film is available to watch on Netflix, Amazon Prime or to buy from Amazon directly.

What my clients say about me


“Marcus’s design skills and communication skills throughout this project were all valuable traits, which helped make the project run smoothly as possible. Working with Marcus, it’s easy to see his love and passion for design, this stands out in his work. Overall Marcus is very hardworking and a fantastic UI Designer. I believe Marcus would be a great asset to any project and I would highly recommend him.”

Kieran Sperring - Yuga

Managing Director

I found Marcus on a marketplace for designers after looking for one and talking to a few. His communication was great and he quickly got the gist of what we were doing. We decided to get him engaged for UI and in less than a month, he delivered more than 20 screens for our Android app using Sketch for different screen ratio and size. He then delivered those screens for iOS. Our developers were very happy with the package, so was I. In our next phase, I would like to have Marcus involved more in our UX. I wish him well in his future endeavors.

I tried to take on the design for Rendezwho myself but hit a wall because I’m a developer not a designer. I think the designs Marcus provided were unique and visually simulating. I very much liked working with him on this project and think he provided very high quality work. I would like to work with Marcus in the future.

Adil Ansari - Co-Founder


“I’ve worked with Marcus on several websites. He is a rare combination of keen design sense coupled with modern workflow (Sketch 3 and Zeplin). He makes my life as a developer easier. He handles the design freeing me up to focus on the code.”
