Swim Guide app redesign

After Swim Guide’s website redesign, the next step was redesigning the app. Unlike the website however, the goal wasn’t to do a complete overhaul. The main focus for the team was to update the skin.

The Challenge

By using the Drink Guide app as a template for this update, design-wise, there weren’t any huge challenges. The challenges faced in the Drink Guide app redesign carried into this app (ie: text size, column width and height, etc…) but it was expected and easier to prepare for. Swim Guide does have more functionality and data than Drink Guide though. For instance, on a beach page in Swim Guide, an image, a bookmark, icons, and a banner for sponsors had to be accounted for. Where on Drink Guide, text was the main concern.
