Live: Embrace Now - intuitive matching via app


Explaining Embrace Now is not easy. The initial idea was to create an app that would allow people to show how they really feel at the moment. Really, really.

Since words and selfies can be a temptation to show how smooth and great everything is, Embrace Now should do without both right from the start. The question was - how do you show yourself then?

The answer of Embrace Now is one you can feel. You can create a moving picture of your own emotional state in just a few steps by selecting colors, shapes and animations in the app, right at this very moment.

As these " soulpictures " became visible during development, a new idea was born. How would it be if people could discover themselves using these images alone and come into contact with each other through them? How could it be to communicate not only myself, but perhaps also the workshop I want to offer, primarily through a moving picture?

So we designed and deposited an intuitive matching, showing which people or offers fit well with my current picture. At the back of the pictures there is also the possibility to write something about yourself or your offer - if a few words are supportive.

Maybe you would like to try it out?

Embrace Now is available for free in the Google Play Store and in the iTunes Store

More information about Embrace Now can be found on the website 

...and a Happy New Year!
