Clock were commissioned to design and deliver a What’s On style native app called “Urbano” for DC Thomson, giving users access to top editorial secrets around Aberdeen city.

Preferential Treatment

Clock created an app where upon downloading Urbano, the user is first asked to select a mood or category, based on what their preferences, e.g. ‘fancy a bite to eat?” or “need some inspiration?”. Once selected, users are taken to a listing of results of what’s on in Aberdeen under that category. As well as standard venue or event details, the user is able to ‘call to book’ and read editor reviews, which are incorporated into each venue’s listing.


Content is always key when it comes to a successful app, or any digital product for that matter. Urbano offers Aberdeen’s residents, and its visitors, tips on the best places to go all in a slick, modern, cool, mobile app.
