The Smartsheet Android app was designed and built as a mobile solution for Smartsheet, which is an online SaaS platform for work management. v1.0 of the app was not feature parody with the main application. It was intended to enable users to view data and edit in a limited capacity.
IA / Wireframes
Like all projects, I start with a listing of screens needed by considering possible user flows within a given scope. That leads to basic pen and paper wireframes. Eventually I put them into a digital tool like Balsamiq to get a better sense of placement and to easily share to stakeholders.
Visuals / Redlines
After wireframes were approved, I began laying out visuals. I relied on the existing Android styleguide to keep things consistent. I used a combination of Adobe tools to complete these. Redlines were provided to the developers. The devs were involved in the entire process so it was a fairly seemless transition. We kept an open dialogue leading up to launch to make sure rendering and animations looked good on all screen resolutions.
In addition to the app design, I created marketing materials for launch. This included imagery for the Google Play store, email campaigns, and social media.
