Today I’ve been looking at different app design’s and reading tips to get my app to look better. I;m trying to avoid getting to specific about my ideas for the design of the app, as we are getting more information on Thursday when we go to the fire station, however, looking at all these different apps gives me quite a few ideas, so it’s going to be interesting to see if I’ll be able to do something similar.
Like with the previous picture, this also uses nostalgia and that old-fashion look to get people interested, it’s a good idea and might be the thing that makes people download that app instead of another.
This design is homie, it uses nostalgia and the old fashion theme, not something I would create, but still really good.
Simple. good symbols and good colours, this is a good simple design that is easy on the eye and looks really easy to use, love the symbols.
This is one of the design that I liked the most. the design is simple and the use of menus are really clever and cool.
I liked this design quite well ( and that has nothing to do with it being Norwegien, hehe) I liked how they have used tiles. and that the colours are bright and good. I’m not sure if I’m correct, but I think that the orange colour appears when you click on one of the blue tiles, and that is a really good idea that I might try out.
I think that this design was cool, it’s also a new and creative look to kinda make it 3D. I do think that it might be a bit strange to use it, but it still is really creative and cool.
I liked the colours in this one, I also liked how user friendly it looks like, you don’t need any arrows or anything to direct you, because it’s so easy to see what you are supposed to do.
(Click on each images to find what I mean about them)
Of course, when I find apps that I like, I always also find those that I don’t like.
It does look good (despite it being a bit to dark) but I just feel like it look more like a poster or a image or something, I wouldn’t have felt like I could have clicked on anything in this design.
I think it has to do with that colour and that ghastly background picture, I just really dislike this one. I feel like it’s a bad Halloween themed app, which its not.
This is alright, BUT it feels… cheap. Not a Target app. The symbols looks bad, and yeah, just really dislike it.
After looking at all these I’ve been starting to think about colours. I think that since it’s kinda supposed to be from Devon & Somerset Fire and Rescue Service I’ll use their colours. In their logo they have four different colours ( if you include the colour white), so I’m most likely going to use those, with white and red as my primary colours, and blue as my secondary and the gold as my tertiary colour.
