Title – Papyrus (Name of Egyptian paper first known paper in history)
Genre – Wallpaper/personalisation app
Summary – This app consists of saving wallpapers on to your phone or setting straight to your background or lock screen.
Target audience -This app is for phone users that are on there phone quite a long time and like to have unique wallpapers or just have something pleasing to symbolise a taste of something the user like such as flowers, dogs etc. Users of any age.
Visual Elements – My app will have a modernistic look and use both dark and bright clours such gold and black.
Rationale – I have chosen this idea because I think wallpaper apps are underrated and also I find them useful when changing my background and I especially get indecisive when trying to pick a new background so I find it very helpful when a wallpaper app is able to help me find something and provide me with something new every time I need a change.
Primary and Secondary Research – As secondary research, I have written break down of some popular wallpapers app on my word press and how they differentiate and their user interactivity.
Legal and Ethical considerations – The most common way of ensuring confidentiality is to use an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) when dealing with any outside parties that are likely to become aware of your confidential information.

What makes a good logo is 5 simple principles; Appropriate, Versatile, Timeless, Memorable and Simple.
The logo should be appropriate for its intended purpose such as if you’re designing an app for kids make sure to give tit colourful and primary colours to make it obvious that it’s intended for a younger audience. however, if creating an app for a statistics app you would keep it simple and use dim colours such as dark greys, black, red or blue. It’s also important to state that because its an app for cars it doesn’t need to have a car as a logo. A logo is purely for identification.
Versatility, a good app need to work across a variety of mediums and applications which is why a logo needs to be designed as a vector based format, to ensure that it can be scaled to any size needed and work in both horizontal and vertical formats. one way to ensure a versatile app is to create it in black and white first which allows one to focus on the concept and shape. its also to remember to consider the printing costs the more colours you use the more it cost.
It should be timeless so it can effective for a very long time 20 or 50 years. The best example would the coca cola logo if you compare it to the Pepsi logo you can see how effective creating a timeless logo can be. the coca cola logo has barely changed since 1885, however, the Pepsi logo has undergone several different looks.
Making a memorable logo is achieved by using the principles of simplicity and an appropriate logo. just like the Mc Donalds logo which is a ‘M’ and using the colours red and yellow which give the younger audience look for kids.
A simple logo design allows for easy recognition and allows the logo to be versatile and memorable. Good logos feature something unique without being overdrawn.
