Mobile App Dark Mode

The Marleyan State Government has an existing web portal for citizens to complete government services on, but wanted to extend this into a mobile app. At launch, this app will support dark mode for both iOS and Android.

  • Timeframe: 6 months
  • Design Team: Hybrid UX/Visual team of six
  • Industry: State Government


While creating a mobile app for the Marleyan State Government, the need for a custom dark dark mode interface arose. Dark mode has increasingly become a must-have for users on mobile and even desktop devices as our time interacting with these devices continues to grow.

Dark mode has a litany of benefits: it's easier on the eyes, less disturbing to other people around a device, and depending on the device it can extend battery life. However, dark mode isn't as easy as flipping on a switch (at least it isn't for a designer!), it takes designing a new custom interface and varies from platform to platform.


As a designer in the Government and Public Services practice at Deloitte I get to bring creative design solutions to federal and state clients. It's rewarding to get to make products that help support our citizens, but it also means that sometimes the details of those projects have to stay under wraps. The Marleyan State Government is a real client, but their name has been changed to anonymize this project.

There's much more to this project that I can't share publicly. If I've sent you a password to read more you can enter that by pressing the button below. If you have any questions, just shoot me an email.
