Project Abstract

For a final year project, we each had to create a digital artefact of our choice. In past years these have been Invision prototypes, apps, websites, music videos, and graphics. I chose to learn Swift, and design my very own iOS app from the ground up.

Branding

I wanted the branding for the app to be simple and reflect the subject matter — wine. I also tried a couple of concepts that were more 'travel-focused', integrating a 'pin' etc.

Final Concept

Eventually I settled on a logo that I liked. It was very wine-focused, and tries to integrate a bottle-opener, bottle, and a 'W' into it.

User Interface

I then moved on to creating a UI style based off of detailed wireframes that I created (to follow), and an interactive Invision Prototype. This formed the basis for the user experience and gave me a blueprint to follow as I moved into coding with Swift.
