In this project, students designed an e-reader application for phone, tablet, or desktop. Students learned the various stages of user interface design, from initial research, to deciding on features, to using wireframes to work out the overall structure, to creating a polished visual design.
Students considered the typography of the book’s content, planned the use of type and other design elements to enable users to navigate easily, and brought all those elements together into a unified whole.
They learned and used new skills in Illustrator and Photoshop, designing icons, buttons, and other interface elements.
Jonathan Lopez’s Book Rook enables users to categorize their books, see their progress while looking at their whole collection, share highlights, and see other readers’ highlights.
