Designing a mobile map,
creating all the user interface elements
of a mobile map
LESSON LEARNED 8
Precision and attention to detail keep the focus on the target.
Our eyes can catch inconsistencies. The challenge in this project was to refrain from just eyeballing it. I designed icons using a small grid, so I would not exceed the boundaries. Every feature of every button carefully adheres to the grid. Drop shadows and corners have a fixed setting. As simple as it looks, this was a time-consuming project, but the results were rewarding. Just like a sculptor, I designed these UI elements with detail and precision, a very rewarding experience.
