Design Ideas



- We should make it easy and simple. - Jay P.

^ I agree - Jay P.
- Should the menu be on the side or at the bottom? - Jay P.
- Most likely a side pop out menu side making a nicer design. - Harvey J.
- It should be colorful so it will get people eyes and they will want to look at our app. - Lucy S.
- I agree with the need for minimalist design - a cluttered app could have a negative impact rather than a positive one. - Mason B
- I agree with the colorful ideal because it would catch people's eye - Buckets - DMS
- I also believe it should be simply because we are trying to stop stress and a complicated app will cause stress to figure out how to use it. Alexis L.- RCA
