Learning new software can be very challenging. The Adobe Creative Cloud has so many programs for all your graphic design needs. Technology is constantly evolving and becoming more advanced in everything we do. In the UX/UI (User Experience / User Interface) world, everything is based on how the user interacts with all types of platforms created digitally. It also consists of research and collected data on how the user navigates throughout their experience. UX seems to have been around for a long time but now there is more of a hands-on trend to actually hear from users what can be improved to accommodate their needs more efficiently. Professor Pellicciotta gave the assignment to design a short mobile prototype in Adobe XD for an ice cream business that makes deliveries. First time using Adobe XD and the creators definitely made something that is much easier and more helpful to use. One of the nice things about it is that you can create your layouts in Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator and import them into Adobe XD with all your layers. It also lets you preview your work on a template mobile of the device you be easily shared with a client to receive their feedback and changes for their project. The name of the ice cream business I decided to call it was “Organic Flavors“. I wanted to create a logo and layout that represented it to be more organic to sell plant-based flavors.
The whole idea was to create and familarize ourselves with the programs. This motivates me to design my own website once I finish the layout and the next challenge would be the coding!
