This year, I will be introducing a new course in my GDPW program at Humber College called UI Design. Students will explore design techniques for web and mobile devices while adhering to web standards and experimenting with design trends. For the major project, I decided to build a simple web application that would randomly select a meal – from a database – depending on the user’s category of choice. (ie: breakfast, lunch or dinner) I asked my good friend, and fellow instructor, Thomas Borzecki (@iborg) to create the database and produce the code, while I created the concept, functionality and design objectives of the project. Each student will be given a bare-bone application which will need to be styled with CSS. They must consider user experience, device deployment and utilize various design techniques to create a useable and successful application. Each student will be responsible for designing and creating a logo for their app, develop a minimum of two responsive layouts – as well as – creating a web ad to promote the new application online.
*Don’t worry WDDM, I’ll be giving you this project too.
Check out my example of the meal application project , which I named “Foodify.”
