BAUHAUS APP & EDITORIAL SPREAD
With the goal of creating an effective type hierarchy, I designed a mobile device app and print spread for the Bauhaus Art Movement. The body copy comes from Wikipedia.
APP IDEATION & PROTOTYPING
After generating several wireframe sketches, I chose two that required minimal scrolling so the user could quickly access the information. Using Sketch, I created higher fidelity prototypes of my two ideas. After receiving feedback, I selected one design and began a series of iterations experimenting with typographic hierarchy, layout, and color.

FINAL APP DESIGN
The finished product is designed in Facebook's Origami, and allows the user to scroll vertically (by location/chronologically) and horizontally (by famous works/designers). The other design elements are meant to emulate the clean, accessible, minimalistic feel of the Bauhaus movement itself.

PRINT PROTOTYPING & FINAL
With the goal of complementing the app, I created several layout sketches and transferred them to InDesign using a grid. After multiple iterations and lots of feedback, my final layout had the look and feel I wanted to achieve, with a successful typographical hierarchy and the right amount of white space, color balance, and simplicity.
