App for Learning to Sail

App for Learning to Sail

The Challenge

Design a simple app that can teach the basics of small boat sailing, including sail trim, points of sail, and boat control. It’s helpful to be able to teach students the concepts, because once they are in the boat, there is a lot to think about.

My Role

Conceived idea and performed domain research.

Created high fidelity mock-ups in Sketch.  

Utilized background expertise in small boat sailing to inform design.

High resolution annotated screen

Mood Board

As part of the design process, collected images to help inform the concepts and designs incorporated into the prototype.

Early brainstorming

Progress of screen design

Early versions of design, as built in Sketch.

Next steps

Critique of initial design from subject matter experts.

Initial user feed back.

Creation of motion studies.
