The purpose of this project was to practice in Visual Design. But redesign visual part without reworking UX, worth almost nothing. I selected “Flights” application, because design of application looked very outdated. During design I tried to be as close as possible to functionality of current app.
1
First of all I tried to understand whole functionality of this app. I made screenshots of almost all screens and ordered them according to the app navigation. So I got whole application structure on one Artboard. After that I analyzed all screens, what information placed on each screen, what relations between screens, what tasks user can perform on each screen, how easy the user flow for different tasks. For example, how looks user flow for booking ticket for 1 person round trip flight, or how easy to switch currency in the app.

When I got full understanding of application (big picture), I started from "Start Screen". I made a list of fields and controls with values. For each field I selected a data format.
Also I made a list of possible values for varying fields, example: different City Names to know maximum and minimum length.
3
When content for the screen was ready, I started Design Exploration stage. I made about 23 possible options and choose most effective and complete solution.
4
For Departure and Destination screens I used list of fields, formats and examples from Start screen. I also looked how other apps implemented these screens and had a previous experience from Travel app design. No intermediate version have been saved.
5
For Tab Bar I repeated all steps which I performed for "Start Screen": list of fields, data format selection, few sketches.
6
Design exploration of Tab Bar. I made a lot iterations of Tab Bar on Search Results screen. I started from simple variants, then made more complex and get back to simple again.
7
List of fields for Search Results card. Few sketches.
8
After that I gathered all necessary information (fields, text variation, icons, etc) for Search Results cards and explore different variants.

I think font size of Price should be small, because of hierarchy of fonts, because other information also important and because this field has prominent color. Prominent color helps User quickly find it on the card and it doesn't take a lot attention, giving possibility to find Flight Time, Flight Duration, Rating, Stops and Airlines information.

This is current version of the app. I will continue design and add more screens.
