Defining the problem
Students need a mobile application for viewing and renting student accommodation, local to Glasgow and Edinburgh. Landlords also need access to the application to update any existing lets and to place new lets.
Notifications, map of area(places to eat/drink), search filter, direct messaging, sign up, profile page, login/logout, rating scheme, create account, Prices, list of properties(post properties/edit).
We were asked to develop 2 personal personas of the average user who would access the app. This was done to give us a better understanding of what the main functions of the app would be.
We created paper prototypes of our app to get users to test it out. We would use any feedback to make any changes to issues that may need to be addressed.
After we had our final navigation, we then created digital wireframes to show where our final elements would be within our app. this was done using Adobe Illustrator.
We then had to develop two A2 moodboards that would help us develop the overall look of the app. Looking at different imagery to inspire our final look.
A3 Style tiles
We created two A3 style tiles looking at different color palettes, textures, fonts etc. this would help to define our final look for our app
