Prototype V6.0

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!

My Design in Print!

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.

Responsive Website – Mobile First Design

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.

Doggy Dance – Style Tile

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….
