For my class assignment for Mobile App Design, I was in a group of 8 undergrads from HCDE and Informatics. We were responsible for creating a design language from scratch, much like Material Design or iOS design. From there, we would design the standard apps for this system.
Our group wanted to focus on designing a mobile design language for people who were illiterate. We believed this would be a challenge and it would help a group of people who are usually overlooked with current mobile design. The design language, Icon.ic, focused on icons and voice interaction.
We worked in two week sprints and presented/got our work critiqued by the class and industry professionals. Our group made design changes based off this critique. We changed the mobile designs constantly through this feedback, and even made a final switch to a smartwatch design at the end.
