iPhone App Interface design

View the final PDF file I submitted for class. It's a large file but an interesting presentation of my final designs.

My favorite assignment from Fall semester. We were given the assignment of designing the interface and hypothetical functionality of an iPhone app.

At that time I was impressed by the glossy textures common in interface design. It's not my aesthetic of choice any longer, but I do enjoy doing the work in Illustrator and appreciate it.

The main feature of the app was the ability to connect with the calendar of other users. You could then customize how the app would remind and notify you of friends' calendar events.

I think the radio tuner is my favorite screen I designed--I struggled with it more than the others at first.

Clock interface

The clock would display a white face during the day. As the day transitions to night, it would slide along the greyscale to black.

Settings panels

The settings panel for what I called the iKnow feature along with a general settings panel.

Calendar interface

Monthly, weekly, daily and 'Add Event' views. The bubbles on the weekly view would slide left and right to show events for that day.

Radio interface

The user would be able to manipulate the needle with his/her finger with a swiping motion. To ensure the user would land on the appropriate station, only stations with a clear signal would be displayed. The needle would 'snap' to those displayed stations. The user could also choose any station by swiping the numbers on the rotating panel in the middle.


Images of my wireframes. Still trying to decide if I'll always stick with hand drawn wireframes or if I'll go digital.
