City Slang - colourful and handrawn illustrations for app
These 2 illustrations represent my concept of an app that gives tourist info on local details on slangs, phrases and other details about the city. Problem: Utilized 2 case studies, Paris and Chicago, to address potential miscommunication between citizens of different countries, cultures or places. Solutions: An app that can help to research on the city beforehand. This can help the user to be aware of terminology when speaking to natives.
Mascot logo for app
What was the original idea for the scrapped mascot elephant?
I decided to also focus on crafting a mascot acting as a guide. Inviting mascots/guides are featured in many applications on Google and Apple stores. This influenced me to craft an elephant traveller to enhance the user experience. A speech bubble showing message, including, greetings and fun information, would have played an integral part in the mascot being the app's figure.
During the finishing stage, I felt this elephant traveller guide did not blended with the city slang theme. It was removed from the finished product. However, I will show its complete design.
