Students create video demonstrations of unique mobile apps designed to engage community

Students designed digital products for mobile application that add and expand on Greenville’s sense of place through additional programming (or activity). Students chose a local partner to work with and defined unique goals based on the needs of their partner as well as the end user of their application (often these are not the same people). Students were asked to consider a diverse audience of users.

In this project, we discuss concepts of UI (user-interface design) and UX (user-experience design) and work with digital prototyping tools such as Adobe XD. Additionally, concepts and techniques for designing for digital environments such as wireframing, prototyping, and user-testing are introduced to support design development.

The following work was completed by junior graphic design students (spring 2020) at East Carolina University, Graphic Design, School of Art + Design.
