Practicality and Complexity
With newfound insights, the initial product in mind was an application that would respond to daily user feedback about the weather, and what they chose to wear that day.
A list was made of functions and solutions to various problems, of which the most feasible ones were chosen. The goal was to have a product that displayed a simple weather forecast, suggested an outfit for the day, and allowed for users to respond to the day’s weather and outfit.
An early version of the wireframes proved to be an information overload. The idea had practicality in mind, but the resulting flow was too much for a quick read in the morning.
The original style in mind was lacking in character, feeling bland and generic when combined with the early user flow. At this point, I fell into a design block, trying to figure out a balance between information, convenience, and style.
