Mobile payments

Pygg is social payments made easy. Pay anyone, anywhere and request cash if someone owes you for last night's dinner. My work with this youthful startup included branding, iOS app, animation and more.

Pygg was designed to easily allow small payments between peers. With a simple form on the main screen the app turns a tedious transaction into something as effortless as a tweet.

Whilst making payments is the core of the app the user can also see his/her own and friends activity in a social transaction stream, making it easy to see pending payments and re-pygg someone.

With the name deriving from 'pygg jar', which later became piggy bank, a character embodiment of the business with pig-like features only seemed right. Utilising his wings, Mr Pygg can fly money between phones with graceful ease.
