There is a perpetual dilemma that exists among individuals who yearn to share the intricate tapestries of their dreams, juxtaposed with the fleeting nature of dream recall. In a comprehensive study orchestrated by Shelby Harris, PsyD, compelling data has illuminated the temporal constraints enveloping the realm of dreams, demonstrating that the vivid recollection of these nocturnal adventures is most pronounced within the initial 90 seconds upon awakening. The intricate dance between the desire to articulate the ethereal landscapes of the subconscious mind and the evanescent grasp on those ephemeral narratives unveils the delicate intricacies inherent in the intersection of dream sharing and memory retention

Commencing with user interviews, I aimed to understand the problem and gauge the demand for an app. To ensure data-driven decisions, I interviewed 15 individuals, aged 10 to 60. This diverse sample provided insights into user preferences and needs, forming a solid foundation for subsequent design phases.

I conducted research to see if there was an app already in existence like Dream. There were 4 apps that were similar, however, were not focused on dreams. Next, the concept of dream was compared to the other 4 apps to determine key features and differences.


One thing I do on every project is get inspiration. This always help with deciding on colors and layouts much quicker. For this project I used Google, Pintrest and Dribble to get inspiration. These sites assisted me in picking the colors and what aspects of the app that would work best with its users


Hand sketched wire-frames were created before creating the actual designs

Before creating the high-fidelity mock-up I designed the app in black and white while still deciding on the primary and secondary colors. This way I could work asynchronously without having to stop the design process to make a decision.

We tested four different color options amongst our users to determine which colors worked best when waking up. We asked that they view screenshots of the four different options when waking up and give us feedback on which was least shocking. Out of the four screenshots below, the first had the best reviews, because it's a warm color and worked well with your eyes when waking up.

The goal is to craft a color palette for the app that not only looks visually stunning but also communicates the essence of brand and enhances the functionality of the application. The result is a harmonious and user-centric design that leaves a lasting impression on your users

The design process was very fun and exhilarating. I enjoyed conducting user research by means of user interviews and converting the initial concept to designs based on feed-back received.
If I could change anything, I would have used Figma instead of sketch. With having to work closely with a team, Figma makes it easier to show and share your work in real time
