Designing my first app – what have I learned?

Designing my first app – what have I learned?

It’s finished! Well, I should say published, because an app is never *really* finished, it just reaches a point where you have to ship it and continue to iterate it with the feedback you (hopefully) get from the users. My partner and I created an app called Dream Catcher. It’s a dream journalling app that helps you log your dreams. You can write as much information you want and mark your dreams with tags and emotion you felt. The more…

Welcoming Autumn

Here’s one piece I was inspired to create as soon as autumnal equinox came around.

Project 2: Album Single Cover (Muse: Dig Down)
