Research & Insights
“We can think of many designs using location data, but not sure one for SVA IxD students only…“
We often heard SVA IxD students talking about this project being not sure what to do. We carefully observed and noticed what we care the most.
We basically came up with an idea that’s practical for students. It’s an app that we can share the good deals. When you come to think of it, we as design school students get to spend money on projects where the tuition already isn’t so cheap, either.
FOR SVA IxD students WHO want to save money when buying props, “Dealight” reveals the good deal info shared by school contracted stores and friends THAT is usable while students are in busy semesters. UNLIKE other deal apps, Dealight helps SVA IxD students quickly get the info and compare deals.
We designed four different pages and the menu where user can simply turn on/ off push notification with the toggle. Main page shows the stream of info generated by students with tagline. We also designed a page where user can save individual deals, a search map where user can find the deals and a page when push notification comes in. While working on wireframes, we had to think of how to design its database.
We designed the logo using different font weights. We made Deal more bold and light super thin. It turned out price and the name of the store is the most important info out of everything so we made those two are more bold as well.
