Week 6

The group has decided on doing a health and fitness app. I have been tasked at doing the gym and restaurant recommendations section of the app. Before designing the interface for the section I decided to look at some popular mobile apps for inspiration.

Quite an obvious trend between the app layouts is a top menu bar with vertically organised, horizontal content. This led me to develop the following sketches.

Original Design Sketches

When I was sketching the four ideations above I decided that it would be good to add a social media component to the design, and having a news feed with updates from friends, gyms and restaurants. This led me to sketch this.

Updated and detailed interface sketch

As you can see I have sketched a few ways to improve the layout of the news feed and some extra details on certain features for future reference.
