Here are the final designs for our Magna Carta application.
Main Screen – features a zoomable high resolution image of the Magna Carta. The clients wanted the Magna Carta document to be a main component of the app, hence we have clearly adhered to their requirements. The design features a simple navigation bar, whereby users can click the burger button to access the menu in order to filter the overlays.
Menu – the menu design is very clear and simple. Each category is accompanied by a relevant icon, using iconography really helps to make it more appealing for users and is also a common convention of iOS apps. The menu bar has a scrolling gesture allowing you to further filter the clauses by the various different categories.
Clause Details – the translation and contextualisation of the selected clause appears in a translucent box that slides up from the bottom. It is clear and easy for users to read and the Magna Carta document is still the prominent feature.
Overall, we are pleased with the design of our app, the simplicity really helps to make it easy for users to use and navigate without difficulty. The design is sophisticated and professional looking, which has been achieved through adhering to Apples iOS conventions, as well as Salisbury style guide. The designs show creativity and originality, especially within the category iconography. In the next design post, I will clearly discuss how the designs have met the assessment criteria.
