Zontik iOS app- minimalistic weather report

This iOS app design is a part of my graduations project at China Academy of Art. Below is a short video that I put together to explain the main functions.

Inspired by the minimal, slick design of Dieter Rams, my app is designed to tell you whether or not you will need an umbrella today.

There are many apps which will tell you the precise temperature with up to the minute accuracy. However, for most of us the only thing we need to know is whether to take an umbrella today.

For more relevant weather reports, swipe your finger across the upper and lower sections of your screen, revealing the temperature and wind speed for today.

From the very beginning I was into skeuomorphic design. I love the way old Apps were made, they look almost tangible and real.

Landing page is available at andreydanilov.com/zontik/ Sorry, but the App itself is for Chinese App Store only.

Here is a process of app development from sketches to a live experience.

Thank you

Huge shoutout to my buddy Allen, who helped me to develop the App and put it on the Appstore. 谢谢你!

Design Marathon (Day 22) – Star Trek poster

It’s been a busy week around here, with all the graduation activities and paper procedures. (Graduation photo post is coming pretty soon, need to process the film first). Here is a small poster I made on my free time in the past couple of days.

I’m happy to announce my self-initiated “Star Trek Into Darkness” poster. Loved the movie, what a great vibe! When I saw the last scene, I thought: “That is totally gonna end up as a poster.” So here it is!
This time I challenged myself to use as less elements as possible and keep everything very simple. I limited the color palette to 3 colors as well.

Played around and made a vintage, more minimalistic variant of the same poster:

Super rough first idea sketches, as you can see I ended up forming a Starfleet emblem out of Enterprise engine trails:
