From strategy to design
The first step in converting a high-level idea into a tangible interface was to create a user task flow. I divided the flow into 3 separate sub-tasks in order to simplify the process.
Next, I collected inspiration for UI components that would be relevant or AeroBoard, such as an image curation interface.
After collecting UI inspiration, it was time to create the first iteration of the interface through pen and paper sketches.
Once functionality has been accounted for through lo-fi sketches, it was time to create a visual identity. I created a moodboard to facilitate this process. Since a user persona was not yet created for this product, I focused on creating an interface that was clean, neutral, and simple - one that would appeal to a large audience.
Now that AeroBoard’s visual identity has taken shape, I created a mini design system by extracting colours from the moodboard, choosing a typeface and creating a few UI components that will be repeated throughout the mockups.
Once the above steps were complete, it was the final sprint to the finish line!
