I designed the ShawnAccess app for the good people over in the Shawn Mendes camp. They were looking for a way for Shawn to reach out into individual fans lives in a unique way. To me this immediately screamed Augmented Reality.
One of the features I ended up designing was a way for fans all over the world to collect items based on location and physical experience. Album covers, billboards, posters, merchandise (new and old), signs in venue parking lots and so much more would reveal live AR experiences. Users can record and share these to collect points and level up and even possibly be featured in Shawn’s personal feed. This is just touching the surface of features.
– Live chats with Shawn in app only
– Flash Sales of limited merchandise in app only
– First access to tickets in app only
– Free tickets if you are in the correct location at the correct time in app only
The app went on to be featured by Apple in the AppStore for almost 2 weeks.
From the store
ShawnAccess is the official Shawn Mendes fanclub. The app opens up opportunities for real-world augmented-reality experiences and special access to ticketed events, limited-edition merch and even once-in-a-lifetime prize packages. If you’re a Shawn Mendes fan, ShawnAccess really is your best chance to get closer to Shawn.
