Every Friday at Tradecraft. we pull a topic out of a jar and then we have one (1) hour to quickly create one/some user interface screens! The main goal for this exercise to not only to practice thinking on our feet and coming up with quick interaction ideas, but we also get to flex our visual design muscles!

Challenge: 

Design a turd locator for the SF SOMA Turd Patrol

Inspiration:

Tinder, Yelp, Google Maps, Material Design

Lessons Learned: 

Turds are actually running rampant all over San Francisco, so much that there is a real turd patrol. In retrospect I should have used an approach that measures how terrible the air is around certain areas to locate the turds, since just plotting them on a map is not really feasible. Designing for Android is a lot different than iOS since there are universal back buttons and sub menu buttons.
