Greetings! A couple of weeks ago, I showed off some updated designs for my redesign of the ‘Today in History’ app. Of my three potential designs, I determined that the third one had the most potential: Honestly, I had a feeling that this design would come through in the end, it has strong graphical elements in … More Prototype Inbound, Updated Screens
Last week, I showed off three comps of different design options for my mobile app redesign. After reviewing these designs, I decided to have another go at designing them. This time, I eliminated the ‘choose a color’ option, in favor of trying out some of my own color palettes. This first example uses a color … More COMPS: Back to the Drawing Board…
