DraftKings has three mobile apps available in the App Store (iOS): DraftKings Fantasy Sports, DK Live - Fantasy Sports News, and DraftKings Sportsbook. Of the three apps, the flagship DraftKings Fantasy Sports app seems to be the least on-brand. The DK Live and Sportsbook offerings are newer products in comparison, and most of my design direction for the desktop lineup builder was inspired by these two applications. The colors and type choices were heavily influenced by where I believe the DraftKings design team is taking the product based on the appearance of these applications.
To close the visual gap between the apps, I looked for opportunities to make the main DraftKings app match the darker mood and feel of DK Live and Sportsbook. I also reused the typography, iconography, buttons, tables, and salary gauge components defined for the desktop experience to make it feel more cohesive. Additionally, the current presentation felt very text-heavy so I identified and removed the redundant labels, and a table header row is used to indicate what the different values represent. Most of these updates are slight cosmetic changes, but this kind of approach is more digestible and leads to a better overall user experience.
