For my Final Major Project, I had to consider what types of fonts I will be using for my app. I didn’t want any standard type fonts like Arial, or Times New Roman because their good for word documents, this is an app and needs to be stylish. It’s all about the deliverance of the app which makes it a success.
I used Dafont to sample some fonts because it’s a website with a massive library which I’m used to.
So here are just a few type faces that I have researched into:
Before I started the build of my app I design how the app will look like, with doing that I had a colour palette in mind.
I decided to use Adobe Color to visualise the colours I will be having in my app and here is some of the colours that I have created and found from other colour palettes that other people have created:
Likingthesecolours I went onto a different app called Coolors.co, which is a new website that has implemented what Adobe Color has done with their wheel but adding more features to create your own colour palette. You can change the Hue, Saturation, Brightness (HSB), Red, Green and Blue (RGB), Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (CMYK), Pantone Matching System (PMS). Also pressing the spacebar randomly generates a selection of colour which also gives you the hex code to put that into photoshop. Then to save the colours you have created you can export the colours into a PNG file.
So here is my colours on Coolors.co:
I did a bit of research on various apps on Apple’s App Store and found that some of the app have a Landing Page.
Landing pages are often linked to from social media, email campaigns or search engine marketing campaigns in order to enhance the effectiveness of the advertisements. The general goal of a landing page is to convert site visitors into sales or leads. If the goal is to obtain a lead, the landing page will include some method for the visitor to get into contact, usually a phone number, or an inquiry form. If a sale is required, the landing page will usually have a link for the visitor to click which will then send them to a shopping cart or checkout area.
So I searched for a web app that created Landing Pages and came over Instapage.
Here is my page for Animal Hunt:
Due to time constraints and other projects I haven’t had time to finish my project, so what I did was create a concept of what specific areas will look like to get a visual of how the app will look like when finished.
I created a concept of how the whack animation will look like when the app is finished. Every time the player clicks on the animal to whack it, it will produce a cartoon-like mallet.
For the store which I didn’t have time to do, I created a concept idea of how it will look. In the store you will be able to purchase different characters to play them in the game. They will be able to purchase these items with a PayPal account that will pop up in game.
In one of my last posts I designed a layout of how I wanted my desk setup for the degree show.
