So, I've been working on something over at Collective Ray for the past few weeks. I can't say too much about it yet, but I can say that I've been super stoked on how it's turning out.
The client's been awesome and has handed over the 'Creative Reigns' on this—and we've both been happy with the result so far. That is, until we hit this screen.
So, Dribbble, I ask you—which of these two screens is more visually engaging? Feel more polished, professional? Which sets your expectations that you're about to have a good experience?
My thoughts around this—being that it's the first screen the user'll be presented with—are basically as simple as "a good first impression can make or break something," and I think that's especially true in the world of Mobile Products.
Now, that being said—which is more legit? What do you prefer?
UPDATE: WHOA, THANKS FOR ALL THE SUPER-QUICK FEEDBACK! MORE SO THAN THE COLOR OF THE BACKGROUND IMAGE, THOUGH, WHICH LOGO TREATMENT DO YOU FIND TO BE A BETTER CHOICE FOR THE CONTEXT?

I love the purple, feels kind of mysterious, makes me want to explore deeper into the app. But the gold definitely makes those buttons stand out more.
gold with the purple type treatment (to make things more confusing for you)
I like purple.
On a second look, go with Gold, but in the same way you've done the text on the purple version. I'm really not a fan of the purple text on the gold.
I like turtles.
Both look fantastic, but i'd love to see you go with gold for sure, looks much more modern and just plain cooler. :)
The gold looks better and is more actionable. Has better emotion. First impression is everything.
Gold looks more polished:
- the headphones look sleek and also have the correct dimensions(on purple the ear-muffs are too close to the headband)
- the glossy effect on the pick looks a lot better, the outline looks nice
-the fact that the image isn't purple it makes the purple button seem more distinguished
I like trains.
The gold makes buttons stand out more, but something just feels good about the purple. I want to hang out in it.
Gold, but not with the purple type treatment. Looking sweet though :)
If I'm bein' real witchu, I hate the headphones on both. I like the rest of the logo (and the rest of the screen) on the gold one, though.
@Marshall Bock I like bananas.
I like the purple logo much better. Easier to read for me.
Purple's logo looks more professional to me. And I gold or purple doesn't really matter to me. Just match it to the rest of the app :)
Gold, homie, all the way!
I would try the gold logo on the purple bg. Can we see that? ;) I agree with the peeps here about the logo looking slicker on that version. Cheers @Brian Benitez - Following Collective Ray in 3..2..1...
Definitely like the peach/orange background, the purple is too much of the same tone, also like the headphones on the peach/orange but think they could be tweaked depending on the look & feel your going for, peach/orange headphones seem casual & cool, purple are coporate-looking.
overall great work, love the crowd tonality. peach/orange really pops in my opinion.
Gold but with the logo from the purple version. Looks sick either way though!
@Brian Benitez I prefer the second attempt :) Beautiful work as always Brian!
I love both, but gold.
