beardFIX© – the app and website

What a busy Summer it has been! Our app is on target to be released on the Apple App Store this coming December. We are super excited to see the app finally coming together at last!

We have spent the past couple of months getting our teeth into ionic, angular and firebase and we have an app at last that is 95% fully functioning from end to end. It will be ready for user testing at the end of the week.

Once our user testing starts so can the fun part – the UI design that will fully bring to life our UX desires. We have just secured some real estate online at www.beardfixapp.com – please pop over for a quick visit. At the moment we have only a landing page to whet your appetitie but there’s loads more going on in the background in the meantime so stay tuned for more updates. It is a mobile first design so if you’re out and about your mobile device will ready it without any problems.

We are super super busy at the moment so it may be a while before I update this blog again. Keep an eye out on www.beardfixapp.com for more news and follow us on our more regularly updated instagram account here.

Ciao for now 🙂

Responsive Website – Mobile First Design

homepage_1200px

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.
