For a course on information design I was tasked with designing a way-finding app for a mobile phone context. At the time I still owned a “dumb phone” (and wouldn’t upgrade my phone’s intelligence for another year and a half) so it was a great learning experience. The particular challenge I chose to tackle was for Vancouver transit. After some initial research it became clear that most of Translink’s online properties were focused on specific buses and methods of transportation, rather than on potential destinations. I wanted this app to move away from moving the city and instead transition towards experiencing the city.
I developed the concept, did all visual and information design, as well as completed a mock-up in Flash. You can check out the mock-up here.
