Waze

Unknown designer

Waze is a navigation app that provides route descriptions with live traffic information. The app was built by an Israeli start-up in 2006 and is now used all over the world.

The website uses colorful blocks with rounded corners. The bright colors and round shapes give the website a friendly look.

This appearance is enhanced by the typography, which consists of a rounded font. This font is used in various thicknesses and sizes to indicate the hierarchy. The text is completely black, or white on darker backgrounds.

The text color fits nicely with the bright, light colors. The colors blue, green, yellow and purple are reflected in the small illustrations that are used across the website. Also in the illustrations the colors are combined with black and white, which makes the website a coherent whole.
