UI Experiments in Quarantine

Months being stuck indoors during the 2020 Covid-19 lockdowns was tough on a lot of us. I was already taking some time off in-between jobs during this time and found solace in cracking open figma and putting my mind to work on some personal, just-for-fun projects to keep my creative juices thawed. I was also in the middle of transitioning from Sketch to Figma as my main UI software so this served as some great practice at learning its ropes.

Also what fun would it be if I didn't showcase them!?

A New Cydia
Cydia is a custom app manager thats integral to iOS's jailbreaking scene. Unfortunately updating its UI hasn't been a priority in about a decade so it's no surprise I got my grubby hands on it. I hope one day if a redesign finds itself in the app's future I can be involved. I can't think of a lot of other opportunities to work with the color brown!

Advantages in OLED
Feauring my first 3D render ever, this modal explores abandoning the iPhone's traditional borders, including that god-aweful notch, and having some sparkly fun in the negative space. In certain lighting conditions OLED technology allow for seamless transitions between the phone's screen and thick black bezel and I wish more designs would take advantage of this illusion.

Inky Colors
Sorry about the jarring colors but that's kind of the lay of the land for Splatoon, an online multiplayer game I'm hesitant to admit I've sunk over 3000 hours into. I designed a companion app that helps me sort my favorite combinations of in-game clothing and weapons since the official Nintendo app falls short of providing any sort of use. Like the previous two experiments I wanted to start with an all-black canvas and find a clever way to hide the iPhone's notch in plain sight. The game's UI and overall style is bright and whimsical and features no right angles/hard corners so I translated that over to the app.

Bomb Hills For Black Lives

Hill Bombing (v): to ride down a hill as fast as possible, a favorite pastime of San Francisco skateboarders. Hundreds of protesters gathered at top of one of the highest hills in the city to bomb Market St. all the way down to the ocean, a 5 mile trip, in support of Black lives and all BIPOC who've fallen victim to police brutality and murder.
