So here is the final app prototype I designed for my Design Experience Class. The app is called Cash For Thought. This app prototype took over 4 weeks to finish. Still, I feel like I could have added more details and pages. I worked on this prototype all Tuesday night and actually didn’t sleep because I had to present that Wednesday morning. So I worked on the prototype Tuesday night all the way to Wednesday morning 5 minutes before my class started.
Today is the last day of my User Experience class. It’s a bittersweet symphony because the class was really challenging but I practically learned everything I’m doing now from the class. I learned Photoshop, Illustrator, XD, and Sketch all in that class. I find it sort of funny that I didn’t even know what user experience was before the first day. Now, I think I want to pursue a career in the UX field. Also, I had a great teacher who really inspired students to push to the limits of their work. Her genuine interest in students progress really inspired me to try and do my best work for every project. On the other end, this semester is FINALLY OVER! Oh man, I didn’t think I was going to make it out alive..literally. For the past 4 months, I’ve been sleeping at 3 am sometimes 5 am then aggressively forcing myself to wake up at 8 am to either go to work or school. That basically means getting 2-5 hours of sleep every night, and yes that includes the weekends. It was brutal but it also helped me learned how to use my time wisely. Unfortunately, I learned how to really managed my time in the last week of the semester. In other words, it’s too late to try to catch up with other projects I missed because I was to busy doing another class’s project. Anyone who is a CT Major, I bow down to you because I think our major is probably the most demanding in terms of projects from classes. The fact we don’t write essays for our final doesn’t make it easier. Prototyping, creating and editing videos, designing stage settings are 5 times harder than writing an essay because you can’t bullshit yourself to an A. You actually have to sit down for 8+ hours to design your work.Skip back to main navigation
