USER INTERFACE DESIGN

I designed a concept for Virgin Atlantic's iOS app because their current app (2014 Version) was in need of a major update. After sending it to chairman Richard Branson and CEO Craig Kreeger I was invited in to meet some of the team and later hired as a Brand Designer.

 

THE EXISTING APP

 The existing 2014 app was severely outdated and distasteful

The redesigned version has a greater emphasis on functionality with a cleaner, more beautiful design. More recently I have created designs for a watchOS app, and have worked on Virgin Atlantic's brand design team for a variety of projects.

A REFRESHED DESIGN

This new design has a large focus on imagery, with a confident use of the Gotham typeface. This coupled with neat iconography and fun animations creates a clean, current aesthetic. The main navigation is now a collection of large images that passengers can scroll through, allowing for a more engaging experience; with room for many more features than a traditional 5-page menu. This overhaul brings a fresh, clean look that stays true to the Virgin Atlantic brand.

 
 
 
 

USER INTERFACE DESIGN

A design for Apple Watch. Taking it further with an experience for watchOS unlike any other.

 

I designed this version of the app to provide a more intimate level of interaction. It features the same navigation and gestures used throughout watchOS so passengers get a consistent experience, but this interface has been dressed with Virgin Atlantic's unique flair. 

 
 
 
 

a Joyful experience 

As users swipe across pages, an aircraft pans across bringing a more joyous experience. Apple's San Fransisco Condensed typeface is used for consistency and legibility on a small screen. Notifications look vibrant with subtle twinkling stars, fun copywriting and brand colours.

After sending my designs to Chairman Richard Branson and CEO Craig Kreeger, I was invited into Virgin Atlantic's Head offices to meet some of their key team members. I later joined the brilliant Brand Design team to work on a variety of projects for the airline.
