Bird Counting Mobile App

This was a side project with the goal of creating a mobile app to support bird watchers participating in the yearly Christmas Bird Count.


To illustrate the concept, I researched and designed a "happy path" of a user successfully adding a bird sighting in the app. To walk through the flow, check out the interactive prototype. (Hotspots are enabled to show where to select on the screens).


My tasks included:

  • Conducting research (subject matter, competitive analysis)
  • Creating the user flow
  • Mobile form design
  • Visual design
  • Creating an interactive prototype. in Invision


Project Year(s): 2021

Tools: Paper & pen, Sketch, Invision, Photoshop
