Thesis Progress… and what I’ve been up to!

So developing an app, and web design as a whole is a new area of interest for me. In order for me to understand many of the fundamentals of user experience and user interface design, I’ve had to spend quite a bit of time researching the web, reading forums, finding visual inspiration, and taking tutorials to learn new software.

I decided that I would like to learn the basics of sketch and invision, as the are design tools that ux designers are using in the industry to design and prototype their work.

Here are some of the tutorials I’ve been doing…

 

Sketch

Learning some of the basics of sketch, and how to use their integrated features to make designing on multiple platforms a breeze! (I also didn’t realize how easy it was to design for web in this app!)

Invision

This was an invision tutorial, using exercise files in sketch to prototype an apple watch app.

I look forward to playing with my own designs in Invision and prototyping them to show user experience features.
