you have a stronger understanding of how this variance is underpinned by
standard design best practices, you will start to explore tactics you
would use to create your own mobile app UI.
In this assignment, you will select an app screen to re-create. This
can be from an app you have already analyzed in this course, another app
you are familiar with using, or a completely new app you found via
research. Then, you will determine what you would change on the screen
based on the understanding you have cultivated throughout this course
regarding design best practices and translating the needs of users.
PromptSpecifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Design a user interface for a mobile app screen. On paper, or using a software of your choice (such as Microsoft PowerPoint), redesign one
screen for a mobile app. The way you illustrate the design can be
simple but it must include all the necessary elements for a user to
complete the primary tasks the screen was designed for. However, the
features you include should not necessarily be the same. Only the
overall goal that addresses user needs must be maintained. While
designing, you must do the following:
Include relevant features such as navigation components or information components.
Label every component and describe them, along with any data they collect or interact with.
Indicate which elements on the screen are interactive.
Apply mobile app UI design best practices. Be sure
you continue to reference the Android Developers – Design for Android
guidelines, linked in the Resources section of this module, as you work
on your UI design. These are very comprehensive but it is important to
use them in all aspects of design.
Justify your design decisions. Explain why you
chose to make the UI design updates that you did for your creation. Your
reasons should be user-driven and compatible with the Design for
Android guidelines. Comment on any new features you introduced or any
challenging areas you overcame with creative solutions.
Guidelines for SubmissionSubmit your completed work in a 1–2 page, double-spaced Microsoft
Word document. Be sure to include photos or images of your UI screen
within the document.

PEER POST # 1
I see a lot of people did not realize how far ahead of things Amazon is after reading the article. But I have thought long before, that Amazon was way ahead of the game. At times I do get that it is a little lazy to think going to the store to find a specific item you may need, to come find out that it is out of stock, and especially to find that the website show it is in stock and just never got updated in a timely matter. That is something I am sure we have all experience one time or another. Not only does the one clicks option save me time from running around different stores trying to locate the item I want, but Amazon for example for the most part usually has lower prices of some items than that of the store. Plus going into the store whether you find the item you are looking for or not, you almost never come out of the store empty handed. There is always something you walk by or see in the isle at the register that you say to yourself, hey, I could use one of these or 2 of those. So not only does the one click shop save me time but it also saves me money. Also to add, not only does Amazon offer free 1-2 days shipping most of the time with membership, but Amazon will also tell you if the item your looking for can be found cheaper at another retailer.
PEER POST # 2
Hello class, I hope everyone is doing well this week. Amazon.com is a vast Internet-based enterprise that sells books, music, movies, housewares, electronics, toys, and many other goods. Amazon’s vision statement is “to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, where customers can find and discover anything they might want to buy online, and endeavors to offer its customers the lowest possible prices.” Amazon thrives on working to become the most convenient company on the planet.
Forward-thinking businesses are gaining an edge on their competitors by addressing six important areas to the best of their ability, and of course amazon does all of them. The 6 areas are reducing friction, improving technology, using a dash button; similar to 1-click, self-service, subscription service, delivery, and access to the business. More and more businesses are adapting to this new business model and are succeeding in pushing their businesses forward.
In my experience I am all about Amazon as it makes my life so much easier. I purchase almost everything I own through their website. Having Amazon sell almost everything I would ever need and having fast delivery and an easy interface, I mean why would I shop anywhere else. In this new age of life, we are always busy, driving to different stores to get what we need is too much of a hassle, and do not get me started on these ridiculous gas prices. The convenience of Amazon is too heaven sent that I do not see it going away anytime soon.
Regarding the question on if convenience will be detrimental to the end users experience, well I am all for convenience being a good thing. The time, money, and headaches saved from using Amazon can help us have more time to do more productive things, save money to spend on other necessities, and well no one likes headaches. Convenience will only keep moving forward and some might confuse that with laziness which it can be, but the good of it definitely outweighs the bad. I hope everyone has a wonderful week, be safe y’all.
In this project you will create seamless images and a 3D object. You will then apply at least one of the textures you creates to your 3D object. You may use the privative meshes and scenes you created in the previous assignment, If they are of sufficient complexity. If you are unsure as to the suitability of your primitives’ for this assignment, ask your instructor before you begin. Primitives’ that exists in their original native shapes (unmodified) will not be accepted.
Project 3: create 3 seamless textures and 1 3D model or scene.
Take a photo (or several photos since you will need to produce 3 seamless textures) that can be used in a texture and then make it seamless
Create 3 Seamless Textures in either Photoshop or Gimp. A good seamless texture has a minimal demarcation as to where the texture bitmap ends and the next one begins.
Using Blender, produce a 3D model of an object or a scene. Your 3d Model must be of an object or scene not just a geometric (primative) shape such as a sphere or cube. An acceptable object model could include table, chairs, furniture, vehicles, etc.
Apply your textures to your 3D model(s). You may need to produce other rasterized graphic textures that are one time uses for your object. For example, if you were to produce a Coke can, the Coca-Cola logo would not be a seamless graphic but may be placed over top a seamless texture of red brushed aluminum wrapped around the model.
The Project ;
Produce 3 seamless textures (using Photoshop or Gimp) (30 points)You may need more than 1 seamless texture for your model. You will need to create your own textures rather than use the samples provided in Photoshop/Gimp or found online.
Produce 1 3D model of an object (40 points)Your 3d Model must be of an object not just a geometric shape such as a sphere or cube. An acceptable object model could cars, scenes, boats or other vehicles, etc.
Apply at least one texture to your 3D objectNote: You may need to produce other rasterized graphic textures that are one time uses for your object. For example, if you were to produce a Coke can, the Coca-Cola logo would not be a seamless graphic but may be placed over top a seamless texture of red brushed aluminum wrapped around the model.
You must include your name(s) in the model (10 points);
Create a Word file to include steps used in creating the model (10 points).
Upload the files to Canvas
Include all files in Project 3 as a ZIP file then submit through Project 3 Dropbox.. The files should include:
.blend file (missing .blend file will lose 60 points for this project);
composited finished 3D object with textures as a jpeg.
The Word file with loginclude all group member names within the document and images
Name your file using the course file naming conventions (-20% if not used)
Note: By default, Blender does not save images as part of the .blend file (this applies to background images or textures used as part of the scene).To make those images part of the file they have to be packed.You can pack all external files into the .blend file by going to File -> External Data -> Pack all into .blend.After doing this you have to re-save the file.
2) Submit a brief abstract describing your final project. 150-200 words
3)Submit final project materials. 500-700 words, double spaced, written in APA format, showing sources and a bibliography
4) 10 slides ppt

Use at least three sources. Use the Research Databases available from the Danforth Library (https://libguides.nec.edu/az.php) not Google. Include at least 3 quotes from your sources enclosed in quotation marks and cited in-line by reference to your reference list. Example: “words you copied” (citation) These quotes should be one full sentence not altered or paraphrased. Cite your sources using APA format. Use the quotes in your paragaphs. Stand alone quotes will not count toward the 3 required quotes.
Copying without attribution or the use of spinbot or other word substitution software will result in a grade of 0.
Write in essay format not in bulleted, numbered or other list format.
You should have a total of 3 posts.
