CHALLENGE

Efficiently display a large number of menu options in a photo gallery app for Android & iOS.

RESEARCH & DISCOVERY

I was provided a site map listing out the required menu items.

I made a few adjustments: grouping Date, Person and Places under (My) Photos. When viewing photos, Users can browse by type.

After modifying the site map, I researched apps (Carousel, Google Photo, Dropbox, Instagram), articles (Android Bottom Navigation), patterns (Material Design) and moodboard ideas (Dribbble, Pttrns, Dark themes, Adobe Lightroom, etc).

Influenced by research, I added a Search feature, the ability to toggle Map/List when viewing photos by Location and the Bottom Navigation (for Android).
