Scrapbook App UI
My Scrapbook

I created prototypes of tour screens for a mobile application, My Scrapbook, that allows users to store and share memories in curated albums. The colors are playful and bright, and walk through the process of snapping a photo, adding a caption, and saving to a scrapbook.


Screen One: Take a Photo
Reports show that first impressions are key when it comes to software. A user's initial impression of usability and design persists throughout the experience with an application. If users become frustrated or overwhelmed initially, they are much more likely to stop using or uninstall the application. Therefore, tour screens are a pivotal point to set the stage for a user. I designed the tour screens to be simple - a central graphic paired with a caption, with a bright, playful color scheme. These ideas are implemented below.


Screen Two: Add a Caption
I wanted the caption graphic to be simple, but also pleasing to the eye and explanatory. I contained the image of Napa Valley Park in a circular container in order to draw the user's eye, while adding shadow to add interest and dimension. The "Napa Valley Park" caption is given a typed effect by having the cursor at the end, as if it has just been inputted by the user. In the UX motion graphics planning, I would make this screen have the animation of the blinking cursor to give the full effect. 

Screen Three: Save to Scrapbook
Another key aspect of a user's impression of a design lies within its consistency. By using the same Napa Valley park trees graphic as above, there is  a sequential logic in the directions that the user will follow, and a building methodology upon previously established ideas without reinventing the wheel. Moreover, the opened scrapbook is positioned above a shelf to imply the functionality that a user can manage multiple scrapbooks.
The final screens side by side are shown below, giving a clean-cut summary of the application use cycle:
