Meditation reminder screen
UI Style Guide
The style guide includes soft color palette with typography, icons, margin and padding grid spacing, illustrations, buttons and bottom naviagation.
Final Concept Screens
These initial concept screens provide opportunity for usability testing. The final meditation reminder screen provides an opportunity for testing to find out if people would like to set multiple reminders (different times on different days) or keep the screen as is.
The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook currently exists in paper form which is excellent for completing the written exercises. It would be helpful to find out which app features would best meet users’ needs. This unsolicited redesign project is currently in the concepting phase and would benefit from user testing. With more time, more screens could be sketched out including the meditation screen, the lesson readings, and accounts page.
