Designing an app to make children the heroes of their own story

Our challenge was taking the beautifully printed children's book, Lost My Name, and creating a digital counterpart which could create the same sentimental experience between children and parents, by telling stories unique to each and every individual user. The Wonderbly app lets children create stories based on different characters for each letter in their name, here's how we designed the iPhone and iPad app to be intuitive enough for children to both understand and engage with.

Nature conservation from the comfort of your own garden

In an effort to save species and give nature a home, The RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) approached 3 Sided Cube with the idea of giving their supporters everything they needed to contribute towards the charity's cause from the comfort of their own homes. We designed a mobile app which gave users min projects that could be personalised by the size of garden, number of people and amount of time that people had available.

Design your future

We’re passionate about collaborating with exciting brands and inspiring organisations trying to solve the impossible. Let’s get together and figure out how a mobile app can help achieve your mission and bring your vision to life.

Fusing creativity with technical understanding

Our process is trialled and tested through years of designing experiences and interfaces that users adore. Working alongside inspirational brands to bring their vision to life and change the way communities perceive them. From sketching initial ideas to prototyping low-fidelity designs, here’s what we do in the realms of mobile app design.

Ensuring that mobile apps are easy and intuitive to use, we wireframe our projects to map out user journeys and create flows that meet the needs for all and every user.

Branding

We look at the bigger picture and using patterns and correlations to map out where different features, functionality and content should be arranged within the mobile app.

Sketching solutions for any niche that needs us

Our design philosophy, strategy and process mean we can approach any app development project with a solid understanding of how different audiences interact with brands on mobile.

Our mobile app design process

1. Design Strategy

At the start of any app development project, we research and discuss your ideas, business, goals and users to roadmap projects and make sure we’re building a solution fit for purpose. This allows us to prioritise features and functionality based on all of the above, informing not only how the app looks and feels, but also how users will engage and interact with any given solution.

2. Journey Mapping

Our app design team use Sketch and Zeplin to map out user journeys and create examples of how users will interact with apps and various screens within them. Architecting features, functionality and content while ensuring that these are presented and prioritised in a way which adds the most value to end users.

3. Wireframing

At this stage, we create low-fidelity designs which mimic the way users will interact with any given app. Providing both interfaces and user journeys that map out the apps architecture and ensures it provides users with everything they need, in a way which adds the most value to their experience with your brand.

4. Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping and design sprints ensure that after we’ve designed certain aspects of apps, they’re tested with users in the real world, gaining insights and feedback that help inform adapted designs and iterations. This stage ensures we’re designing apps in a way which is defined by the people actually using them.

5. Polish & Deliver

Once our apps have gone through development to get the backend functionality built, our final, high-fidelity designs incorporate things like typography, iconography, illustration and animations. Incorporating brand elements and polishing our mobile app designs to make them not only beautiful to look at, but engaging and appealing to interact with.
