Vans Live App

Android / Apple app for Vans Live Application

M R K Development in conjunction with Black Salt Studio team was approached by VANS to develop a dual platform application for both tablets and phones for the VANS live events.

These events included the triple crown events in Hawaii for the professional surfing end of year and snowboarding events.

M R K Development was asked to develop a Content Management System to dynamically update the content inside these applications as well as make the front end applications for iOS and Android.

The design and project outcomes were successful and delivered in a short time. The VANS application was used over a period of 2 years for all the VANS live events.

The CMS was well developed and handled by the Vans Team directly with little support needed for the application.

Overall the project took a significant amount of time to develop but delivered on all outcomes within the given timeframes.

Dual Platform Design

Android and iOS 7 were the targets for this design brief.

Android Support


The design was implemented on Gingerbread and Honeycomb for Android phones and tablets. The application could be dynamically updated from the Remote CMS for both platforms at the same time.

Apple Support


The iOS version of the design used the standard iPad and iPhone version and was simplified by the standard screen size of the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 at the time. The streaming and updating on the iOS platform was in line with the Android functionality creating a similar experience for each design longevity.

iPhone design for iOS 7

New guidelines were applied for iOS and Android to ensure the long life of the design.
