With the disruption of the music business model and the rise in digital streaming services, Band Aide was created to help musicians earn a better living as artists. Blue Like Neon was challenged to help fans engage with their favorite bands and show their monetary support with a native iOS app.
- Mobile app for cashless transactions
- Integrated & secure credit card scanner
- Scalable artist platform
Since concert-goers rarely carry cash at live shows, we needed to create a simple and intuitive way for fans to send money to their favorite artists while on-the-go. The result is an iOS app which allows users to instantly and securely use their credit card to send a “tip” directly to the artists bank account from anywhere. As musicians and music fans ourselves, we also designed the user experience to facilitate artist discovery, allowing fans to explore nearby artists’ upcoming shows and social media feeds.

The Tipping Flow
Understanding that many fans will likely be in crowded bars and clubs when the urge to tip arises, we simplified the process in order to capitalize on their emotional engagement at that moment. A simple tap allows fans to securely scan their credit card using their mobile phone’s camera, which can then be saved in their password protected profile for later use. It’s that easy.
