Mobile App redesign – public library

CONTEXT: The mobile app of the Vancouver Public Library is out
of date with the style/identity and functionality of the library’s website.

I took this as an opportunity to create a possible redesign of its visual and functionality.

RESEARCH:

Public survey data revealed the top 3 priorities for library users are:

  • access to a large assortment of materials

  • aide when seeking information

  • programs and events

REFERENCE ANALYSIS AND SKETCHING

To best match the style of the library’s existing website I identified their key visual
components, use of hierarchy and colour.

This was followed by a mapping of the current app’s information architecture,
then sketching wireframes for the redesign.

viz study

I mapped out the information architecture to spot key features that were out of place,
drew new wireframes and identified the palette and typeface for the redesign.
