The Assignment:

This is a personal side project that I am in the process of creating. The idea came from a need. My wife and I like to frequent the wineries of CT, but not knowing which ones allow dogs or kids, and who has food on site or live music was the challenge.

The Approach

I created wireframes for the functionality that I thought was needed to create this app. I then learned how to prototype in Xcode, which I did with my wires. This was a huge learning process. I changed the wires twice based on working prototypes. I then learned the program Sketch, and designed the app.

I am now in the process of learning Xcode/Swift and will attempt to build this app myself.  I love the challenge that learning new programs brings.

These are some of the early wireframes I created, and then used them to prototype the app.
