As a fun project, and to thumb our nose at the royal wedding, we are having a 4-day sprint to develop an android app this weekend!
We have chosen the name and function of the app, and I have sketched out some UX wireframes.
We require three things to be designed, which are interconnected:
1. A suitable web2.0 ish logo for the product
2. To take the android app UX wireframes I've created and provide designed screenshot for each one, with appropriate elements (eg tickboxes)
3. A suitable web2.0 ish holding webpage for the product (sign up for the beta, as recommended by, etc etc)
The name we have chosen for the app is "Chunk" - from chunking something into smaller bits. This may be altered to chunk/CHUNK/chunkapp as you see fit.
The app we are planning on building is a simple and fun tasklist / todolist app - one that is specifically targetted at helping people share tasks and tasklists with each other. This might be:
- amongst friends - eg organising a trip somewhere, who is in charge of food/transport/accomodation
- amongst flatmates - eg a share shopping list/things to fix around the house
- amongst coworkers - eg organising a small project/taking actions after a meeting
Other things me have considered - making it competitive (eg points for tasks completed); comparing yourself with friends tasklists. Any other suggestions are welcomed!
Two questions we've had so far-
- What screen resolution?
I think starting out targetting the 480x800 hdpi screen resolution would be best - then we can downscale to the smaller screens ourselves (if required).
- What fonts?
I'm not sure, open to suggestions here? Will look into this.
Ok, some examples for logos that we like from 99 designs, with what we like about them. These could be a starting point.
like: speech bubble concept
like: cut out surround concept, font, colour. shopping cart could be replaced with a tick
like: font. don't like anything else
like: edginess of font, how it is a bit grimey or hustler, less clean
like: as above, edginess of icon, less clean, bright colour
like: icon - implies sharing, community
like: font, colour, icon (like a new take on the 'app' icon)
like: logo, the concept of 3 squares (could be tasklists, shows a venn-diagram relationship, sort of)
like: logo concept - collection of tasklists?
So I realise they are a bit in different directions, but hopefully this gives you guys something to go on...
