This is my homework for an upper-level New Media / Interaction Design class at Western Washington University in Bellingham; documenting process so that the mighty Kacey can see that I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing. Feedback is gold.
Thought you might be interested to see the Logo I designed for the organization that is the main sponsor of the event that I’m designing the app for:
The Poe Society was created from a merger between the Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore and the International Poe Society.
I’ll be doing a little “flip” action on the passbook page to make you feel like you’ve left the Poe app and gone to PassBook.
The live feed pulls directly from twitter. Users will use twitter, not my app to respond.
simple hide-show (toggle) jquery will suffice for this. Then you can tap the name of an actual event to see more specific information. You can read about the speaker, and/or add the link to your itinerary (which looks more or less like the events page, but only those you attend.
I might end up adding “back” buttons to “individual” pages, but most likely not to listing pages such as “events” & “speakers.”
The simple list has speaker name and their affiliations/qualifications/what they do.
The individual page would replicate this info with the addition of a little blurb to be written by the speaker, but limited to the space provided. The buttons at the bottom would link you to individual event pages that you could then add to your itinerary if you chose.
First pages of my app
1: html/jquery for the app. I don’t want anything in Apple’s generic form.
2: iFrame around the screens.
3: I’m eliminating the first boxy page. The apple will open to a page about the symposium upon download, and after that, it’ll open to wherever they left off.
4. The itinerary, overall schedule, and list of speakers will need to scroll. Most everything else will be buttons and sliding page transitions, with the exception of the passbook; that’ll need to feel like you’re getting sucked into that application.
5. Code the shit out of this app.
Comps after critique. Don’t fall in love with them; probably changing again by tomorrow.
Initial comps for the mobile app I’m designing. The idea is that this would be something that attendees would use to navigate the conference both physically, and in way of organizing their schedules and find feedback on events.
Also, I have no idea why these look so bad until you click on them =(
Tested a fine arts (photography) student that I grabbed from the ceramics room in the basement. Definitely went thru it a right bit slower than Bradley, but most of the problems she had seemed easily fixable. When she stumbled and I had to point her along, her response was usually “Oh, well, if that were colored…”
