Sticking to my last idea about making collages from places in London, I’ve now developed the menu system for my app. I made it into a simple square using triangles to divide the different sections to mimic the ‘cut out feel’ of the collages. The font is called Expressway and one I chose because of its quite angular and sharp form yet still being inviting and friendly. Because of the colours I use, the design can easily look too childlike so a rounded font wouldn’t do- it was simply too friendly and I needed something to balance out these colours. Expressway does that successfully I think.

The menu square is visible at all times no matter what page you are on and makes it easy for you to navigate through the four options without pressing a ‘back’ button all the time.
There is still very much work to be done when it comes to the app though: how one makes the collages, the design of the map, the share option, the sound, how the conversations are incorporated etc. Thinking left to do-> a lot.
