A refined solution for a weather app that only gives your what you need.
Founder of a new application
My dream as always been to be a designer that creates products that people use. But reaching a market can be hard when your not in a company or have development skills.
This project is a personal challenge of pushing outside of my boundaries as a designer. My goal is to achieve a design that thinks of the user first, as delightful ui and slick code.
Project duration: beta version (3weeks) + launch version (1 week)
The weather made simple.
Ever seen a weather app that looked more like a combo between your accountant spreadsheet and spaceship cockpit?
I’m happy to say that you never needed to know all these things.
When we looked at the weather it often boils down to 3 things:
How much clothing should I wear?
Will I get an extra shower outside?
And will my I get a natural wind brushing today?
I designed an app intending to focus on only the information that matters right now.
First attempt to personal weather
The soul of a weather app resides on its icons I created this set with the ambition of creating a kind environment to my users.
My skills improved along with this project, in order to make my app even more joyful, I went to use newly learned technics for better icon design.
Learnings & Outcomes
This is the first application I ever completed and launched to the public. This project pushed up my graphic design skill further, changed the way I create components for development. Yet the biggest thing I got to do is to dig into code, Before I started this I didn’t know how HTML worked.
As soon as the application launch, I discover hundreds of bug coming up from different devices that I did had access to, API issues, not supported code, etc. This is really the moment what I realised what it meant to launch a product and I started to see the journey ahead of developing an improving it. As I have now, new skills to acquire to improve my product.
