Not writing down my personal best and using notes on my iphone seems disconnected.
Keep it simple, light and MVP. I used elements from ios9 ui kit.
Sketch the idea down, use Sketch app to get a rough concept and prototype in Marvel. Repeat the process.
Based on the above, I started to hack a design in code and played with the CSS and HTML to see how it would respond in different screen sizes.
Match of the day in the 80’s had a scoreboard text font. I used fontstruct to create the font and converted it to a webfont.
I used sound effects for when a goal is scored or when a penalty is missed. I shall upload the video soon. Do you play Football Manager?
Keeping the design simple will help it adapt to most of the devices out there. Complex layouts could hinder speed. The technology available now makes it easier to do.
Content is King
The audience wants the words and pictures. Decorating and creating fancy stuff can get in the way of the content. Let the user breathe and minimize distractions.
There is less real estate on the mobile screen. Ensure your links and buttons have enough space so you can touch the target. Cramming information is bad for usability.
My love of simplicity and martial arts led me to the type Knockout by Hoefler & Co. Testing out available names, I added the extra W.
Talk about my interests and create a habit of writing articles weekly. My goal is to inspire people and learn about marketing.
Minimum viable audience: the blog covers a lot of topics. Once I find my voice, there will be a singular focus, it could be martial arts.
The old intranet neglected and the blog unused. To book a holiday you had to email your manager, this system became a burden. Designing for marketers, developers and designers who can be a fickle bunch.
Create a modern design to encourage staff to blog. They could book holidays on the intranet, see how many days they have left. You can even nudge the project manager if they haven't responded.
This was not a priority project since it was not paid work. I worked with a developer and we could not start the code from scratch, causing issues. We shipped it and worked in an agile way to fix them.
Clients I've worked with
