BIRTHDAYS

The Birthdays app redesign was a personal project centered around re-designing the app I use to keep track of my friends' and family's birthdays and other important dates. I saw the potential to create a fun atmosphere within the app and play with the exciting nature of celebrating people's important life milestones.

 

The goal of the project was to create a simple and easy to use design that makes users want to celebrate!

I started by identifying what I wanted to change about the original app and began to map out a wireframe for how the app would function.

In addition, I worked on a new logo, colors, and iconography.

I decided on a bold and bright color palette and moved forward with icons to match. The icons could be used throughout the design and serve as branding elements.

I wanted to reinvent the onboarding process to help users understand all the features available in the app. I used bright colors along with the branded icons to create a cohesive feel.

After you create an account, you are taken through the process of adding your first event in the app with branded speech bubbles.

To add someone's birthday, or other important life event, you can create a profile for them inside the app.

The homescreen is simple and easy to understand and navigate. Different symbols reflect different event types. In addition to viewing each profile, you are also able to see your dates in a calendar view.

To easily navigate the app, there is a filter system where you can sort based on categories such as family, friends, and work.

Overall, my Birthdays app redesign project allowed me to explore bright color, celebratory imagery, and a simple user interface design.
