20 Awesome Landing Screens for Performing Arts Mobile Apps

  1. 1. Your mobile app’s loading screen gives you the chance to make a great impression on your app users. Here are 20 loading screens from performing arts apps that hit the mark.
  2. 2. You can never go wrong with using a great image of your building as the loading screen image combined with your logo. Just check out this image from Alabama Shakespeare Festival.
  3. 3. La MiradaTheatre puts their logo front and center on their loading screen. In addition to an engaging background for contrast, the image fades to black at the bottom - which keeps the background from overpowering the thinner text font.
  4. 4. Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony uses repetition of their logo to highlight their branding.
  5. 5. The Clarion uses a gorgeous image of a sculpture to visually underscore the venue's name and logo. Well done!
  6. 6. TIP: Always put your logo on your loading screen. But it's okay if an artist performing takes the visual spotlight! Alabama Dance Festival knows that their app users want to see dancers dancing. Why make them wait?
  7. 7. The loading screen for Santa Cruz Symphony positions its logo in the center with a background image evoking their conductor's personality.
  8. 8. A landing screen featuring student musicians laughing is a great way to visually present your school. Bravo, New England Conservatory!
  9. 9. Oh my!Things are heating up at the opera! Opera San Jose highlights a performer from one of the season's works.
  10. 10. Emens Auditorium goes subtle on logo elements in favor of highlighting their tagline "experience the power of performance" punctuated with a ROCKIN' background image.
  11. 11. Logo...check.Tagline...check. Image of performers...check. Great quote from a patron...check. That's a lot to put in a single loading screen, but Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center pulls it off.
  12. 12. Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra adds a touch of humor to their visuals accenting their "escape and refresh" tagline.
  13. 13. The Newtowne Players use a clean design featuring well-known theatrical symbols - a red curtain combined with the comedy and tragedy masks.
  14. 14. Symbolism + Performers + Logo = success for Lyric Opera of Kansas City. The graphic interpretation is quite engaging.
  15. 15. Rockport Music highlights a unique aspect of their performance venue - the view! Makes you want to go to the Shalin Liu Performance Center, doesn’t it?
  16. 16. The Royal Conservatory highlights the interior design for theTelus Centre for Performance and Learning with a full stage and audience.
  17. 17. For their loading screen, StateTheatre of New Jersey uses an image with a full audience witnessing a performance filled with energy.
  18. 18. The GranadaTheatre loading screen tells the app user that the app is loading -- which places the app user at ease if the app happens to take a few more seconds than usual to load. They also use the theatre’s façade as the background image, which serves as a visual reference for new patrons. It also triggers the visual memory for returning patrons.
  19. 19. Detroit Symphony Orchestra brands their app as "DSOTo Go" which highlights easy access to their content - including live streaming video broadcasts. DSOTo Go also highlights a funder. Heads to up to development and marketing people!
  20. 20. By dubbing its app the "Ferg Insider," Ferguson Center for the Arts promotes "exclusive access“ to app subscribers. Who doesn't want to be an insider with exclusive access?
  21. 21. Cincinnati Opera knows - if you have a killer image for your season, that's the image to use for your loading screen. Simply stunning!
