Bit by Bit
Bit by bit is a language learning application for use in schools, designed for the Apple iPad. It's developed up to the interactive prototype stage, which was presented to the client for the purposes of showing them how Bit by Bit functions. I was the sole designer of Bit by Bit, with exception of the typography, which is Montserrat by Julieta Ulanovsky, and the iconography, which comes from the Segoe UI font by Steve Matteson.
I was tasked with tailoring the app for special needs students from the start. This meant that I had to take into consideration various factors and craft an experience that all students, including those with special needs, could enjoy. I based Bit by Bit on other apps of similar quality, like Dulingo, but also drew inspiration from professional software suites, like Rosetta Stone.
Colors and typography were the most important aspect of this project because students would interact with these often. The colors chosen for Bit by Bit are high in contrast and provide contextual awareness to elements students can interact with or simply read. The type chosen, Montserrat, provides heavy and bold letters that are easy to distinguish, making them extremely legible.
