- Overall, we are looking for a sleek, fun, peaceful design that users would not feel stressed in, even if they are faced with lots of tasks to complete.
- Consider using a physical metaphor/textures as the basis of your design. For example, a notebook, planner, a wooden table, or a shelf with items.
- As for colors, we prefer something bright and includes a blue. 60% of our current users are women, so we'd like a design (look and colors) that would appeal to them without alienating our male users.
- Currently, clicking on the header bar currently brings up all your activity for the application. Alternative header designs could be envisioned as well.
- Clicking on tasks tab at the bottom shows all tasks assigned to yourself
- Clicking on friends tab shows all the friends with whom you share tasks.
- Tab navigation on the bottom is optional. If you choose to not use tabs on the bottom, an alternative navigation to these view would be required.
- Designs that are in accordance with Apple's Human Interface Guidelines (http://bit.ly/pU9VfL ) are strongly preferred.
Other applications we like:
- Facebook Messenger
The astrid_fame image and "illustrator file with many of the images : buttons currently used in astrid" are available if they are helpful but are not required to be use in the any design.
