Basics of Understanding Mockups

Understanding Mockups

There are 3 parts in the design phase for mobile apps. First, you create Wireframes and this is where you lay out the skeleton of the app you are trying to build. Basics such as buttons, menus and image placeholders are drawn in black & white shapes to provide the basic structure of the app’s interface. You could think of it as an Architect’s pencil drawing of a building. Next you need a color version of the wireframe to have a color representation of the app. This is what we call Mockups. Your app becomes more visual and detailed in terms of color choices, font, style and icons. Think of it as a design that you want your app to look like at the end. More than that, mockups is a way to provide stakeholders and investors a chance to see how you represent your app. You would want superior…    read more

Horizontal Information First Design

The concept of Horizontal is to bring back horizontal viewing of information on the screen. I’m inspired to bring back the way we read books, and the layout of a page in books. I also want to bring a cleaner and a mobile design element that integrates without hindering information at it’s primary core. Information-first Philosophy Information-first design approach is organizing a clearer and delightful reading experience for users. It is structured within topic contents from the side bar. It integrates pictures and videos, and has headings that start on each page. These are just the basic integrations to start off. <a href="https://i2 go to this website.wp.com/www.destructive.co/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Pic-2.png” rel=”attachment wp-att-502″> This design is born out of the dread of viewing vertically.

Top Reason To Hire A UX Designer

For App Entrepreneurs who might not know what a UX Designer does, it is most likely they will think it is an option to hire one. A good place to start in  bringing across your app ideas is to have someone guiding you on the importance of user journey. And that’s exactly where UX Design comes into play. Hiring a UX Designer is important before you even start hiring a developer because they would not know (from your way of speaking perhaps!) how your app will look like. Sure, they know that the user has to submit a form or have GPS enabled, but all these can go wrong if there isn’t a ‘blueprint’ for them to know what they’re doing. This is where your UX Designer plans out the screen and creates the flow from start to end for the Developer to code your app. Top Reasons To Hire…    read more
