We are looking for designs for two screens in this contest (with a number of other screens needing design work in future contracts):
1. The main "launcher" home screen which allows the senior to launch one of 5 built-in applications (details below) using big iconic buttons with text labels.
2. A "start of day" screen which pops up when the senior first touches or picks up the tablet on a day, which provides a pleasant greeting and gives them some relevant information each day.
1. MAIN LAUNCHER HOME SCREEN
Should have 5 (with space for a 6) buttons. The buttons should each have large icons with text labels to indicate their functions, so that the senior can readily identify what function each one does (remembering that seniors are less familiar with standard app icons than younger people):
a) Voice call - like making a telephone call, this button will lead to a screen allowing them to select someone to talk to and place that call
b) Video call - like the voice call above except for video calls (something a senior may not be very familiar with, so design of the icon here is important)
c) Messages - so that the senior can leave or listen to recorded voice messages from or for their family members
d) Photos - so that the senior can view photos shared by their family members
e) Reminders - this is where the senior can view a list of upcoming calendar events such as medication reminders, doctors appointments and upcoming birthdays
Additionally, the corners and margins should be used to house:
i) a button featuring elements of the Teedo logo - the function of which is to bring the user back to this main launcher screen from any other screen (i.e.: it is present on every screen so should probably be in a corner, say the top right, and not take much more space than is needed for a senior to press it reliably). Perhaps in green to indicate being connected to the service (other icon colours would indicate problems with the service)
ii) a battery charging status and level for the tablet's battery (super-simple)
iii) Time, day and date
2. START OF DAY SCREEN
This is the first screen the elder sees when they tap or use the device in the morning - should be friendly but not too busy. We would like to include the following:
a) The current time
b) Welcoming words such as "Good morning!" and "Today is Saturday July 5, 2014"
c) A panel containing today's weather including a weather icon, type of weather (e.g.: sunny) and high temperature of the day
d) If there are new (unseen) photos in the device then it should have a panel saying something like "You have 8 new photos" and a thumbnail (small) photo that will change between the various new photos.
e) An OK button to dismiss the screen
f) A product icon (Teedo icon - attached)
Screen is 7" diagonally, and is 1920 x 1200 pixels in resolution and always held in landscape mode.
Two screen layout designs (as described above):
* Vector versions of all graphics (AI or other acceptable format)
* Full size bitmaps (PNG or other acceptable format)
