Mind Map & User Flow

Sketches

App Interface

Initial

My initial design was bright and colorful and conveyed the theme well, but was over whelming your eyes could not focus. Being to busy takes away from the simplistic and easy design I was originally going for so after asking for recommendations from classmates and many others I developed the following final mock-up!

Usability Testing

After getting the design down I created an interactive high fidelity mock-up using InVision and went around campus to get people to test my design. Most people who tested the app were not designers and could understand and easily use the app. The overall findings are below, majority of people rated it fairly high and overall above average.
