I created a weather app design in Illustrator that’s marketed towards children. The app is designed to be very simple and user friendly, using characters to portray the different kinds of weather. The app not only gives live updates on the weather forecast both locally and globally, but also has various educational widgets and events to help children learn more about the science behind nature’s weather!
The final designs of my app, featuring the main three pages.
This is the main page of the app. It shows today’s weather and also features the character to represent that weather. If you click on them, you’ll be given a daily fact about the weather. It changes everyday.
This page is a weekly view of the weather, although you can keep scrolling down to see later dates. It gives more detailed information on the wind and precipitation levels, which can come in handy!
This is the global page, where the user can use the interactive globe to find major cities around the world and what weather it is over there!
I created a lot of development work for my app including a navigation map, icon and interface design as well as mock ups and experiments.
A mock-up of my app in the Apple Store. I’ve imported in the app designs from my other files and created an icon and alternative screen on for my branding.
I created three possible icons for my app. Although the first one was rendered really nicely, I decided to choose the last one because it featured one of my characters with an interesting background, making it relevant but also stylish.
These are the character designs for my app. I drew them all in Illustrator.
These are the sketch designs for the app characters.
These are the user interface and weather icons that I made for my app. I made a draft phone screen to test the designs against before importing them into the page designs.
Here’s an optional mascot profile page. The idea of this page was that if the user scrolled down on the homepage, it would lead to this extra page. The characters who have been featured to the user already will have their profiles available to read. Other weathers will require unlocking in order to discover more about them. The user would have to wait until that weather came before unlocking their profile.
