Tanner Moushey hired me earlier this year to do some design work on a web app that he has been thinking about building called StudyChur.ch. Having never attended Bible study myself, I had to get up to speed pretty quickly! Tanner envisioned an app for people in their 20s and 30s that would be similar to more traditional Wednesday night Bible study groups. The idea is that users can form a group and then assign a Bible study to that group. Each Bible study would have particular assignments on any given day and the app users have the ability to write Bible studies themselves, too.
Tanner and I worked together to build wireframes from the information that he had given me as well as so mockups that he had done before he decided to hire me. The wireframing stage for this project was more important than any other stage, by far. Since the app has to do many things, we needed to use the wireframes to not only block out the design but make every step simple for the user to follow, and make sure that we didn’t miss any small function that could mean a lot to the users.
We talked about how much we both like an application to walk us through a process without distraction, a concept which I employed to the portion of the app used to create a study. We talked a lot about the process of creating a study and how a study should be broken down: by day, chapter, section, questions, week etc.
The result is a clean, easy-to-use interface that can adapt as StudyChur.ch has more users and grows. To go along with the web app, I created a clean brand, in keeping with the interface. More on that next week!
