UX Project 1: Visual design is tough
Tough to do well. Anyone can throw some colours on a site or app, but when you get down to it the colours really do evoke an emotional response.
The original version of this smart home app I skinned had a dark dark grey background with yellowish gold accents — drizzy style. But it was so cold and metallic. I wanted it to feel calming and soothing like when you get home after a long day. Decided to go with a 2 tone blue with yellow accents. Pretty soothing.
I’m not 100% happy with the end result just yet, but I have to give a presentation on it tomorrow so this will have to do for now.
