Web Design for Consumer Tech App Website


About Cobble

Cobble is a decision-making app that helps couples answer the question: “What do you want to do tonight?” 

Manifested through the thousands of couples using idk tonight, an editorial site and brand that reaches an audience of over 55K, Cobble is bringing the latest and greatest experiences to the palm of their hands. 

As a decision-making entrepreneur, founder Jordan Scott is passionate about couples deepening their connection by taking a familiar framework in dating and applying it to relationships. 

Couples can experience the beauty of swiping right with their partner for restaurant ideas, shows to watch, books to read, recipes to cook, NSFW toys to experiment with, and more. Since launching on June 26th, 2020, our users have swiped over 317K times.
