42 Days of UI – Day 1

42 Days of UI - Day 1

For some months now, I’ve been a “UX designer” but a very unusual one in that I only do IA and wireframes. A UX designer is expected to do UX and coding or UX and UI. So it’s like I’m half a person.

In 42 Days of UI, I’m going to progress towards being a whole person who does UX and UI. And I’m going to start by replicating existing designs to ground myself technically. 42 because that’s the meaning of life.

For Day 1, I’ve replicated a screen from Dcovery. Photo borrowed from my friend, Daniel’s, Flickr photostream.

The most challenging part of this screen is the slightly curled up effect in the middle of the title. I’m still trying to wrap my head around masking (for the whitish spotlight in the area of ‘local time’); I keep forgetting how to do that. Other than that, I made my own version of the “Attractions” icon because I didn’t get the representation with the original.
