MusixMatch Spotify App


Musixmatch is the most popular lyrics destination on mobile and connected devices with more than 30 million people using it worldwide to discover lyrics. Since Musixmatch launched in early 2010, we have changed consumer behaviour by allowing users to scan their music library and streaming playlist to retrieve lyrics via Musixmatch apps.


Spotify Application

As always I’ve started researching the look and feel of all the major and most popular apps in the Spotify catalogue and once I’ve identified the best cases of UI/UX design I’ve moved on to the MusixMatch app visual identity. It had to be fresh and engaging, focusing on the lyrics and how the user can interact with them but more importantly how he could feel the app as his own app. It has been challenging due to the numerous design’s constrictions limiting the type of visuals to be utilised. After numerous iterations the final design was so successful that not only MusixMatch was the number one in the most downloaded spotify’s applications list but it subsequently got incorporated within the spotify web and desktop apps.


Anybody who enjoys reading songs’ lyrics and sing along.
