My Tri-C Space

This is a design of a new app for My Tri-C space. This app is meant to make it easier for students to register for classes, look at schedule, and check final grades. Since the app is information heavy I decided to use the Tri-C green as the only color in the design and mostly focus on the layout and visual hierarchy of the design.

Instagram Redsign

This is my redesign of Instagram. One of the things I did for this redesign is add text to the buttons to make a clear call to action because the icons were not very clear. The other thing I did for this redesign is give this app a vintage them to go along with the filters and the square cropped photos that remind me of the Polaroid cameras that print square photos.
