A simple app that amalgamates your online content into a single day view

Idea and UX

In the haze that is our digital lives, what we have done can easily be forgotten.
I wanted to design an app that allowed you to view all your social activity (across all your platforms) in one place, whether it be a status update on Facebook or a liked video on YouTube, the app would group your activity by day, into a digital diary.
I always start an idea with the UX, drawing out simple screens to help formulate the concept.

Your automatic digital diary

Once I have a structure from the UX I start looking at the design elements and UI. Animating the screens in After Effects allows me to easily communicate how it should work to the developer.

Branding

Next, I move on to the branding elements for the app. In this case, I wanted just a strong single letter to be used as the app icon and so played with a bunch of P's until I had something I liked and went well with the screen designs.

Minimising on screen clutter

Clever interaction design allows for less on screen at one given time. I'm a firm believer of letting the user discover their app functionality by using natural feeling transitions. In this case of showing the menu the user pulls down revealing the menu behind the content.
