Cook Like A Native… is a personal project that I have been working on to bring a modern, slick cooking app to world food. In the previous post I have outlined my discovery phase and early UX work. So far I have created the recipe page and on-boarding process, if you haven’t, check it out.
In this post I have started creating the look and feel. In an agile manner I am working inside out, from the recipe page out.
I’ve created a style tile, and really started to hone the overall look and feel of the project. I’m going for a dark theme, this is for two reasons. Firstly, it creates a very punchy, sophisticated look for the project and unlike any of the top recipe apps that are out there. Secondly, one of the issues I identified when doing my research was poor legibility, especially in the steps of the recipe. I wanted to explore if I could increase this with a dark background and considerably larger, cleaner typography.
It’s early days on this project and I will keep posting the visuals as I firstly UX them and then put together the look and feel.
