Kenta's Work

November 2018

Evaluate design

After going through theory about design principles, Kenta put their new knowledge into practice by analyzing both good and bad examples of apps/websites.

Why do you want to learn design?

Before diving deep into the course, Kenta shared their learning goals with their mentor.

Sketch your logo

To keep practicing sketching and idea generation, Kenta also sketched ideas for the logo of the app or site to be designed.

Generate ideas

Kenta started generating ideas for their main course project, starting with a brainstorming exercise.

Sketch your design

After generating ideas with words, Kenta started getting hands-on by making 5 sketches of their design.

Create your provisional style tile

Set up a photographic library

As a next step in building the style guide for their project, Kenta chose at least 10 pictures that aligned with the style they want to convey.

Vectorize your logo

While learning about vectors, Kenta practiced by creating a simple logo for their project.

Final style tile

Kenta put everything together in this deliverable: colors, type, imagery, and logo.

Gather your icons

Next to photography, iconography is a really important part of a brand’s imagery. In this project, Kenta chose the icons they’d be using.

Deconstructing grids

After learning about grids, Kenta took a look at 2 sites and analyzed what kind of grid they might be using.

Find the right patterns

Kenta took a look at common UI patterns and analyzed 2 for navigation, 2 for search, and other 2 specific for their project.

Create and explore your sections

Things started to ramp up here! Kenta created multiple versions of wireframes for their project.

Practice visual hierarchy

Here, Kenta practiced creating visual hierarchy for a couple of hypothetical cases.

Final version

After gathering feedback from their mentor and other people they showed their design to, Kenta created the final version of their project. Ta-da!

2 high-fidelity versions of your design

Every designer understands the value of iteration and exploration. Kenta spent some time creating 2 hi-fi versions for their design.
