I want to create a very different type of travel app, I want it to be very unique and memorable.
I started off by writing down some of my ideas, I decided to try and make it personal in a way.
I really liked the simple illustrations used for this app design, this kind of design would work both for children and adults. I also like how they used a darker blue for the menu bar – it highlights and draws the eye there.
I really like this simple Illustrative style, the colours make it look nearly real while still keeping that playful illustrative style. I do however feel like it might have a more grown up vibe to it, like late teen/adult sort of aesthetic?
I really liked the dark colour scheme as it is easier on the eyes.
My aim is to create a Bible app that takes kids through time to teach them bible stories. I know a lot of kids who have missed out in Sunday school because of Covid and I figured that this would be an ideal app for times like this and just in general. Growing up I would have loved an app like this as it modernizes the Bible without adapting the message. A teaching tool.
I think it might even be a fun idea to make it an app that grows with you? As you get older and are able to tackle more difficult Bible passages the app will help you and even offer recordings in a podcast manner of meetings with ministry and bible reading teachings.
I went into Procreate to start creating my illustrations for my app
I tried to create a rocky shore to illustrate Jonah and the big fish. I then decided that I didn’t really like look of it so I kept the wave and added the other elements of the story.
I started off by adding the sun behind it but I think I put it too low.
I drew a whale instead of a fish as in the Bible it is referred to as a fish and a whale.
I changed the look of the whale as it looked a tad too happy before. I also created a little avatar with a map with a cross on it to play on the whole bible travel app theme.
I then decided to focus on Noah and the ark, I kept the same wave as I started with as I felt like it added a bit of playfulness to the story.
These are the first drafts for my travel app screens.
“We are at the onset of a new movement ….
Refers to data so bif that it is imposible to …
It must have:
retured at 10:28 ******* Missed things while answering phone – granny called.
Netflix: this is influenced by big data, data gathered, viewing preferences. We are being feed what we like.
Th problem with big data is that our viewing content is filtered and refined for what you like, the data will show that you are interested in that and it will provide more and more of the same. The filter bubble if you will. This will only increase as the programs become more sophisticated.

D1: Illustrative (30%) app
D2: Diagrammatic (30%) —> make in Figma/illustrator (they are vector based, unlike photoshop which is pixel based.
D3: Blog (40%)
I really liked this illustration style, its very simplistic and straight forward – this would work for a small, short and concise infographic.
I thought this one was very clever and engaging, it made me want to read it.
I know this is a very simplistic and raw approach to it but I found it kind of chargming.
I loved how they used the illustration as a way of narrating and storytelling, It made me want to read to get the other details. It is very engaging and the simple illustrations and colour palette make it easy to read and like.
This is an idea I really liked, I had thought about doing a lighter infographic since it’s been a hard year full of sad statistics – something like this would be a fun project to take on.
I decided to go with my Tv show idea – The plan is to focus on the percentage of the American population that watched the show ‘The Office’ during the 2020 lockdown – A lighthearted approach to a hard situation.
I started off by doing some research and writing down the key points that I would like to use; I will add the links to the articles I used bellow:
Here are the main facts I decided to use
I sat down and figured out the floor plan of the office set up – I illustrated that above in my sketchbook. I think this will give the infographic a nice finish.
This was my initial draft for the layout of my infographic.
I tried out some drawing ideas using Procreate, I wrote the name in the back of the three initial guys.
This was another draft I did in procreate where I tried to figure out the colour scheme and planned out the illustrations and timeline.
I then looked up the rankings each character had with viewers to figure out how to arrange them when illustrating them. I decided to add Michaels desk with his toys and then add the cask behind it.
I used Procreate to create my illustrations
These are my finished illustrations – I made them super simple and without faces to challenge myself to make them as recognisable as possible with just the bare minimum.
I then created the desk and added the cast in
Working on the title. I wanted to add a bit of word play, to make it more whimsical.
I also wanted to try an make the title look like the Dunder Mifflin logo – I settled on the title America’s favourite lockdown show.
This is what my logo looked like.
I then added the cast to the logo – this is the title complete now.
I then planned the graphs in my sketchbook, I created these in Procreate
This is what my first draft looked like. I am quite pleased with my final result as it is visually pleasing and it presents the data very well.
