The best bits

  • The brand creation was simple and fun — I like the Icon
  • The turn around time for the whole project was under 2 hours, this is pretty neat!
  • The simplicity of the concept
  • Marvel app testing was simple and easy to do on the move too.

The worst bits

  • The Logo font could use more work.
  • Final prototype needs more steps
  • Animated transitions in prototypes would be good to play with — AxureRP maybe?

Things I would change next time:

  • Make more use of templates or UI kits
  • Structure the research document with more questions upfront

“Day one, this was very fun! A challenge to put together a project in such a small space of time (under 2 hours today) and the outcome is by no means perfect, but the concept is there, and the branding aspect worked well.” — Jon Bennallick
