PlugBounty is a platform designed for developers who specialize in making plug-ins for different CMS’s, but it’s also for those who test these plug-ins, trying to find certain errors or failures.

This is an innovative platform which allows for a higher level of collaboration, creation, testing and business between developers and researchers (hackers).

The open-source component bug hunting platform

The platform provides a great number of advantages, such as integrated communication between developers and researchers, monthly rewards, system for reporting errors, leader board and much more.

Project requirements and

Client's needs

Mobile – responsive app that provides a fresh approach to troubleshooting.

Clients needed a simple and fast app which would meet their needs in terms of accessing the innovative open-source component bug bounty platform.

  • Create your account

  • Find and report a bug

  • Level up the leaderboard

  • Win monthly prizes

In addition to this unique project, currently the only one of its kind, clients (pretpostavljam da su oni “they”) needed a team of people who understand the business process and all the stages of building a start-up, but also people who are able to deliver a distinctive interface with clear and attractive design which would be functional and easy to use at the same time.

Along with the web app, great emphasis was on the mobile app that had to meetall the standards, including UI and UX.

Let's get you ahead.
It's a long road, but it's worth it.

Solving industry's current problems and

Main challenges

Real time system for communication, profit, but first and foremost - discovering bugs

The biggest challenge was to identify the most important things that should be in the foreground to end-users.
Turning large amount of information into easy-to-use interface was a challenging venture.

After a very thorough UX process, sketching and application flow designing, everything was transferred into wireframes that partially depicted the future app.

Take a look at the application key features:

  • Automatic Component Listing

After registration on the website, PlugBounty allows its users huge amount of possibilities. Depending on how they choose to register, users will gain access based on their choice. Within the app, a system for interaction between developers and researchers (hackers) is integrated. There is also a system for submitting bugs found in a particular plug-in, as well as a system for awarding the most successful researcher.

Creating the first

PlugBounty Visual Identity

A visual identity that will establish expertise and emphasize cutting edge high-end technology.

Welcome to PlugBounty

The open-source component
bug hunting platform

Before designing the app, it was necessary to update PlugBounty’s visual identity. The idea was to keep the original concept for logotype, and then to modernize and adapt it to accompany the style guide of the future app. The final look of this upgraded visual identity gives a modern and fresh impression that perfectly describes this innovative start-up.
