The project assigned was to choose a topic I was interested in and design and code a website based off of that.

THE CHALLENGE

THE SOLUTION

I have always been into skincare and aesthetics, and at this time I had a skincare app idea brewing in my mind. Since the challenge was to create a website, I decided to design a website that advertises a skincare app.

 

I later brought this application to life the following year as Corius.

I quickly whipped together an application to advertise on the website. As this was purely for visuals, and time was of the essence, minimum research was done.

 

Corius is a mobile application that allows users to conveniently take care of their skin through a visual tracker, hydration reminder, log, forum, product recommendations, and product warner. 

THE APPLICATION

INITIAL PLANNING

I jot down possible site structures and what was needed.

I sketched out possible layouts for the site, keeping ease of use in mind.

LOW FIDELITY MOCKUPS

I wanted to keep the look simple, inviting, and professional. The reason I chose turquoise to be the primary colour is because of the calming effect it has. It looks fresh and inviting.

HIGH FIDELITY MOCKUPS

Corius was my first UI/UX project, going into it I was unsure how I would like this type of design. I quickly fell in love.

 

The project was to design a website based off of an interest, and I had kept a skincare app in the back of my mind before this project had even started. Through this process I felt more confident in tackling new challenges that were once foreign to me.

I have not only learned how the design process works for interactive media, but conquered my underlying fear of coding. Once I got the hang of it I was hooked.

This project reminded me to step out of my comfort zone, and not be afraid of failure.

The project is far from perfect, but to design something and have the satisfaction of knowing I took risks and built it from scratch is the best I could have hoped for.
