As new designers, we try to practice our design skills, whether it is designing a website or an app. We got our inspiration from two design generators, Designercize and Sharpen, to help designers practice their design skills. We made our project specific to designing journals to help with both creative writing and design thinking.
What it does
Users first view the welcome page, where they read about how to begin using the site. They can push the begin button at the bottom to generate a prompt. If the users do not like the prompt given, they are able to generate a new one. After finding a prompt they like and completing the task, they are able to upload their creation to their own profile.
How we built it
We built this using Figma
Challenges we ran into
A challenge we came up with was trying to make it different from the other sites. We wanted to make the website more dynamic and have more animations, but since we are still new to Figma and design, we were unable to do it. It was also our first time creating a project with a darker theme. We usually do a lighter themed projects, but we wanted to try out using darker colors.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of learning how to draw on Figma and using a linear coloring for the drawings. We are also proud of creating the file finder to upload the users creations.
What we learned
We were able to learn how to create clouds on Figma. We were able to learn how to do animations and prototype using the clouds. We also learned more about features on Figma that we haven't before.
What's next for NovaSpace
We hope after learning animations, we can incorporate it into our site. After prototyping, we hope to code the website to make it a working product.
