There you go! The end of our Sketch exercise serie.

For this last exercise, I have to turn the emov app mockups bellow into wireframes using Sketch. Let’s go!

Emov is an app allowing users to rent an electric car in Madrid for a short time. Its principal features are :

  • Localize cars on a map
  • Filter results
  • List cars and their features
  • Settle the app
  • Create an account
  • Log in user account

How can I take notes? I don’t understand half of what she’s saying!”

Note that english wasn’t my favorite subject at school :-/

“Ok, don’t panic, breathe… Everything will be fine.”

So… I watched the video 3 times and tried to take notes each times (using pause and rewind when necessary).

At the first time, as I didn’t understand everything, I wondered who was this woman, why she was speaking at this TED and what she wanted to tell us. This is how, trying to follow her speech’s structure, I wrote in my sketchbook some words and sentences which seemed important to me. …
