Wireframing Challenge: Emov

Emov is an app you can use to rent an electric car via car-sharing. The app launched in December of 2016 in Madrid and in just one month, there were already 40,000 people using the service. They want to expand their service to more cities in Spain, but they also would like to expand to Germany, France, Canada and the United States.

Right now I’m getting more practice in using Sketch, a desktop app for the Mac that lets you create wireframes and high-fidelity prototypes very easily.

To learn this software, I took screenshots of Emov’s app and worked backwards to create wireframes from them. This is my result:

This took around two hours to create. Using re-usable icons REALLY helps speed things along.

Some tips:

  1. Get to really know how layers work in Sketch, and how to select them. I really like the youtube videos Joseph from LearnSketch.com puts out. They’re quick and easy tutorials on the interface and were very easy to follow!
  2. Create a library of re-usable objects like image placeholders, map placeholders, text boxes and more — including sample text in various sizes so that you can build a consistent experience without re-creating the wheel every time you set up a new artboard.
  3. Choose an app, take some screenshots and try to rebuild the app using standard iconography. Don’t spend too much time worrying about text details — use placeholder text. Many people use the demon-summoning Lorem Ipsum placeholder text, but I’ve read Book of the Dead and I know what happens when you start putting words out there that you don’t understand. I choose to write descriptive text, plus it helps your designers/developers understand the purpose a little better.

Overall, Sketch is really fun to use and is the least confusing interface I’ve worked in. It’s also very easy to organize your artboards and group objects together. I love it so far and I can’t wait to dig in more!
