messaging app

Hejjo is a simple messaging app where users can text and chat with anyone, anywhere, even if their friends don't have a Hejjo account (Via SMS).


RAIN Everywhere designed and developed the Hejjo mobile App for Android and iOS (and we still develop the future versions). while also creating brand identity elements including a logo, colors, and app backgrounds. This project required ensuring the application felt like an iOS application and an Android application on the respective platforms.

The idea was to create a simple yet intuitive interface that would house all familiar messaging functions streamlined and re-imagined to satisfy even the most impatient user. To accomplish that, we went through a User Experience phase where numerous ideas were tested internally to come up with the best approach.

The result is a streamlined Android app that was well received on Google Play, plus an iOS version coming soon!


responsive website

When ONErpm asked Rain Everywhere to redesign their site, we were delighted to help one of the fastest-growing music distribution services out there. The previous site was not responsive, and simply couldn't compete for a place amongst the striving online music community. While keeping the design simple yet engaging, we developed lots of user-centered features had to be developed throughout the site helping musicians upload, manage, and distribute their music to the world. Rain Everywhere was responsible for the design and front-end development of this exciting new site. We continue to work with ONErpm to build better analytics views for their clients and mobile dashboards for their musicians to understand their own businesses better.
