I’m going to answer all your questions related to this course or about anything on my Twitter ASAP! Or you just can use Udemy Discussion section ;)
In this course we are going to create The Complete iOS8 Mobile App Design.
What this app is going to do is it will help the user to search interesting blogs or news around the web assuming users interests.
This app will search for the news around the globe by receiving all the information the user wants to see in their app feed.
So it’s going to be like those apps in the App Stores where the app will show mostly relevant news or blogs for the specific user needs and wishes.
Firstly, the user is going to see the login page. It has different login options which are log in via FB or Twitter.
Then the user login to the app it’s going to redirect the user to the categories screen there he will choose what topics he wants to read and see in their feed. It’s going to be simple categories page.
After the user sets up all the topics he will be redirected to actual news page (and the app is going to give the user most relevant news for their interests). It’s going to be a grid view this a few additional options for the user.
If the user wants to read more about specific blog item or news item, after he pressed it he will be redirected to blog details page there he can read about it in more details.
The app is going to have a slide menu (or navigation drawer) which will have a few items for the user.
If you want to have a full experience with this course, you have to actual design stuff on your own. It’s going to have the best effect with this course for you because you will start to think like a designer and this way you can develop critical thinking which is probably the most important skill you need in Mobile App Design Industry.
But if you don’t understand some topics or want to have a better explanations from me, just use the discussion section to the right and I am going to answer all the questions as soon as possible. And yes, I will keep an eye on it every single day, so it means my course will never get outdated and I will help all the students with their problems.
Don’t hesitate, work and approach new career. I’m here to just assist you and help with hopefully useful content for your next career choice.
And finally, almost after each of the sections or the lessons I’m going to give you assignments for you to make stuff going on ur own, so you can make designs while learning from me.
With ps we are going to create our interface design, which is what the user actually sees.
It will include all the buttons, fonts, images, icons and all the stuff the user is going to see on his app screen.
Invison is going to be for app prototyping which is going to simulate our app and we could see how it’s going to work without actually touching the code.
It’s not going to be like our final app which could be published to app store.
It won’t have a backend and all the apps logic but it would be a great thing to present for the developer to make sure u r on the same track.
With Balsamiq we are going to design and create our wireframes for the app.
And finally we are going to use pen and paper. We will use them to sketch our app to get a better understanding about it and this way we could turn our quick ideas to a sketch and only when start designing our beautiful app.
But why do we need personas?
Probablythe most important reason to create personas is to set a common understand of the final user. So that a coherent strategy is defined that will result in a product/service that is user oriented and meet the user goals.
Questions to ask during persona development
Sketching enables us to explore the problem space and define the solution space at the same time.
It frames our current understanding of the problem, while also helping us to figure out possible solutions.
While we sketch out our thoughts, new ideas will emerge.
Go back to the example app, which I am designing for this course, News Reader App, see how they could look like and what you need to include, and try your hands on wireframing.
Create a wireframes for your own app idea, which you have developed in the previous lessons, but, as always, if you don’t have it yet and just want to follow me, you can try to make wireframes for News Reader App.
Guides and the grid help you position images or elements precisely. Guides appear as nonprinting lines that float over the image. You can move and remove guides. You can also lock them so that you don’t move them by accident. The Grid is the perfect alignment tool for graphic design, and is very easy to use. By combining the use of the Grid with the “Snap” feature, users can perfectly align objects along grid lines and sudivisions.
CTRL + T On Windows, or Command + T if you are using MAC.
Hold down the SHIFT Key if you want to Transform the object without losing shapes / image original proportions.
Hold down SHIFT + ALT (or Option Key on your MAC) and you are going to change the sizing from the center of the shape / image.
Layer styles are special effects that can be quickly and easily applied to individual layers in Photoshop to drastically change the appearance of something in very little time. They can be preset, customized, or even saved and used for later.
So now, to better demonstrate of what the heck I am talking about, let’s create a simple Rounded Rectangle with rounded rectangle tool.
Well, first of all ,what’s masks?
Mainly, it’s the transparency of the layer and how you control it.
It can only have monochromatic colors in grayscale, i.e. between white, black, and the various shades of gray in between.
What’s going on guys and welcome backto my hopefully awesome course.
In this lesson, we are going to create a beatufiul checkbox which can be used for our app design, or, even better, if you create them more and create more GUI elements, which stands for Graphical user interface, you can sell them out in graphic marketplaces like graphicriver.
Alright, also, in this lesson you are going to learn a little bit about paths and how to use a pen tool.
And what a pen tool is with pen tool we are creating a icons or any vector shape which can be used for any graphic creation.
Finally, the last lesson in this section for adobe photoshop, is an assignment.
What you see right here is the simple iOS App Screen which looks like an options or settings screen.
So the assignment for you is to recreate this exact screen by yourself in adobe photoshop.
