Pablo de Manuel got their new app design by running a design contest:
GUARANTEED+WORK. NewsApp to change the World with a community of informed change-makers: simple cards and gamification.
Check out Pablo de Manuel's App design contest…
We are the third biggest online newspaper in Spain by readers. We are trying to improve the World through active journalism. Apart from our traditional journalism principles, we want to do this in two new ways: 1. Explain trendy news with powerful context, so that people do not remain in the surface of the latest update, but truly come to understand the relevant info in the least time possible in order to have informed opinions. Similar to this example: http://www.vox.com/cards ...but with this kind of design : https://invis.io/N93SF8DWC (this was our initial test so that you may visualize our objective, the idea is for you to take it and improve all the elements you find are not optimal or redesign it from scratch) 2. Create a community of informed change-makers. We gamify the process and reward people helping improve Spain and the World. i. Just by truly understanding a topic, you are helping create an informed society. That is step #1. You can also contribute to a topic by suggesting relevant info to complete points of view or extra context, or by sharing a topic to spread the information. ii. Each topic suggests ways in which normal citizens can help make a positive change. Many of these are measurable. You gain access to extra features and content and you gain reputation in 4 dimensions: Up to date: You follow the super-condensed daily summary of news. Knowledgeable: You read articles in depth. You suggest good improvements/relevant extra-context. Influential: Your comments are well received and you share the info with a lot of other influential people. Change-maker: You act on the positive actions suggested by the editors + community.
We would like to follow material design for the android app for sure, but for the iOS app we'd like to delegate that to you. If you feel comfortable with material design as well, please continue using it, if you have a suggestion, we're all ears. Here is our first version https://invis.io/N93SF8DWC Here are Google's material design guidelines: http://www.google.es/design/spec/material-design/introduction.html Just to name a few, even though we like where it is going, there are many things wrong with our initial design: 1. Menu and other elements are not adapted to iphone. 2. Initial selection of trending topics for you to chose is not attractive/interactive enough 3. cards are copied from other sites. Could we make them more interactive/alive? 4. Not enough community focus/gamfication 5. Not enough focus on personalization/customization Help us with any of these and we'll love you forever! You can use the icon family you are comfortable with. Ideally, for the font, use the zip attached, but please use only for this project, as they are propietary. You can also find the logo attached. And here is a link to the El Confidencial presentation to understand our type of user better: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1rLFIIhgh46aqtD9-8ZqePlsg_8MG-Uxxh2MZDS2HuT0/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000
The core experience is understanding a topic through cards. (SCREEN #1) The entry point, though, is a super-condensed visual summary twice daily that helps bring you up to date and also acts as a way for you to find new interesting topics. (SCREEN #2) Finally, we want to gamify the experience, and we want to start by having a cool personal profile where you can see how you levelup. (SCREEN #3) FIRST: UNDERSTAND A TOPIC ! VISUALLY-BEAUTIFUL IN-DEPTH CONTEXT: Truly understand the CONTEXT of a topic in depth and fast through intelligent cards You can see more info here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vzZz12tPIySqHm08mzcbbOIQbT5UMfcMByZfEYYv81Q/edit?usp=sharing You can see our sample design here: https://projects.invisionapp.com/share/N93SF8DWC#/screens/88202272 1. You can download them for later or Add them to your playlist(s) to have them read to you by a reading bot. 2. Swipe to the right if you like, swipe to the left if you don't. We will try to adapt to your taste without creating the FILTER BUBBLE : http://www.ted.com/talks/eli_pariser_beware_online_filter_bubbles?language=en 3. React to each card by sharing your feelings with a single click, Share the card or go in-depth into the full-article/details/comments : THIRD SCREEN 4. Share the topic or recommend extra links/context you think this topic is missing. SECOND SCREEN: GAMIFIED DEFINITIVE SUMMARY OF THE DAY’S TOP NEWS You can access a description of our initial idea for this screen from here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mVNelePlUWlqYDbV6NiKI1g3hhRdfkzYgXfQk3HeKRk/edit?usp=sharing It is based on Yahoo New Digest and should also work as a substitute for our list of TOPICS: http://www.vox.com/cards THIRD: GAMIFICATION PROFILE OF THE READER You can see a little more description here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1QqEmeQhrBjLlPxMa9VWbb41Hte5Gi2WYQm3ZcUgoy_E/edit?usp=sharing You gain access to extra features and content and you gain reputation in at least 3 dimensions: Knowledgeable: You read articles in depth. You suggest good improvements/relevant extra-context. Influential: Your comments are well received and you share the info with a lot of other influential people. Change-maker: You act on the positive actions suggested by the editors + community. And you can gain rewards that are valued economically as Pseudo-money. You can pay for POWER-APPs / Power ups that you can visualize here: https://projects.invisionapp.com/share/N93SF8DWC#/screens/88202630 Some of these power apps are free, and others cost 49cents a month (the auto-reader playlists + download to read later), and you can gain access to them with the money you earn or by paying a subcription. This was our initial test so that you may visualize our objective and have more context. The idea is for you to take it and improve all the elements you find are not optimal or redesign it from scratch: We have no attachment to i! :) https://invis.io/N93SF8DWC
