Concept Urban Xplorer may not be entirely legal. This app is much like Yelp but for the purposes of exploring abandoned places in your city. This project is inspiring to me because there is a sense of rebellion. People are curious by nature and will often do things that may be unsafe. This app might help young people exploring to be safe and still have fun. There is a community of people that can upload photos, write reviews and search for places to visit. It’s an adventure.
My Design Process I did competitive research on a similar app. I wanted to make my own set of icons for this project to make it have more of a unique feel. When you first log in you take a quiz that suggests places around you based on your preferences making your experience personal as well as setting the tone of discovery in the app.
Outcome I designed several screens including login, onboarding, favoriting, searching, and location details. I also tried to use some graphic design for the logo and color palette to give it an appropriate grungy feel.
