product design


Objective —

Create a type basics reference app.

Reasoning —

Type Basics is not something that a designer can just run-and-gun, so an app that just taught type basics in a step by step process - like baking a cake - was not realistic, so I decided to create an app that could serve as an instructional tool and a reference at the same time for designers, or those who are simply curious.

The name, based on the highlighted attribute in the app icon and splash screen is based on a typographic term- 
terminal: the end of a stroke that isn’t terminated with a serif.

basic walkthrough of experience -

The icon is centered around the idea construction and the design process which type basics play a major role in.
