We are on Version 6 of our prototype testing already! The feedback so far is giving us fantastic direction and navigational insights. Already drafting V7.1 as I type this (V7 has just been done in Flinto which we are moving away from in favour of Invision App). Two gifs of V6.0 is shown below with an android interface but V7.1 will be an iOS interface as further to development tools and supports open to us, our team have decided to focus solely on an iOS app for release late next year. Loads to do yet so back to the drawing board as it were!

As a member of the committee organising Gloria’s 21st Gala Dinner, I was thrilled to be asked to do the illustration work for the social media and print campaigns promoting the event to date. We have put loads of images up on facebook, twitter and instagram, but to see my work in print has been the biggest delight of all. I just had to share it here to mark the occasion. As much as I love the digital sphere, you just can’t beat the look and feel of a physical paper artefact in your hands. Bliss. And a little bit of pride too.
I have built my first website and it is a responsive one – hooray! Before I provide the link I should make it clear that this was a joint assignment for two of my modules in college – both the design and coding aspects of the course. The brief from each module had different requirements but they wanted both to be addressed within one website design. This is essentially a sample of what the website could achieve but it is not a complete build – there are dead links and buttons that lead nowhere so don’t expect everything to operate fully. It does however give a pretty could idea of how everything works and how a user could navigate the site. Take a look at the site on github and let me know what you think:
This is a website for a fictional clothing website and though it broke my heart putting it together it was ultimately a very enjoyable and rewarding experience. I love getting that live feedback once you tweak some code and things start coming together – it is instant satisfaction! I feel I have definitely found my calling.
You will also notice that the Apparel X logo design ties back into my earlier posts on logo design and branding. Looking forward to doing more on this next semester.
I love style tiles, its so much fun pulling colours and images together while trying to create a cohesive whole. I’ve just finished this one for a website project I have to complete, hopefully putting the website together will be just as enjoyable!
I’ve been spending my afternoon trying to come up with stylish fonts to help establish a tone for logo of a fictional clothing brand, Apparel X. After testing out half the fonts on my PC and scribbling furiously in my sketchbook, I believe I have at last come up with a logo with a strong presence and simple appearance. The final logo will appear in a style tile which is the beginnings of a website design I will be working on over the next two week for my Design Practice & Authoring Principle assignment. For now, check out the variety of text and image I experimented with today….
Our group are having real difficulties at the minute with the look and feel for the current game we are working on. It is a rhythm action game where the user swipes the screen in time to the music as per the instructions on screen. We are about to have a serious group think in shortly and here’s a style tile I put together today based on earlier versions – hopefully it will help the discussion and move us forward….
This design assignment required us to pick a name for an fake pop-up restaurant, create a style tile (above) for online branding the choice of two logos for the company. I ran with ‘The Spice Bowl’ – a vegan Indian eatery specialising in vibrant, fresh, simple meals with mass appeal.
The first logo denotes a series of stacked bowls to emphasise group dining: casually stacked, they are ready to serve and share. The colour palette picks up on the bright Indian colours shown in the Style Tile while the uncomplicated font reflects a relaxed and easy style of eatery.
The second logo is has a fresh and easy sans-serif font to reflect the modern take on an Indian menu. Again the colour palette reflects the bright hues of India. This logo plays on the use of spices with the colourful spread of spices across a surface. The mortar and pestle icon underlines the idea of grinding spices and freshly produced flavors.
