During class in week 2, I recreated the options menu from the car service app Lyft.
First, I created a base symbol for each option consisting of a rectangle with an inner shadow, a text box, and an icon from Nucleo.
Once this base symbol (Full 2) was completed, it was relatively easy to customize each box to match its corresponding option. Using the ‘override’ function, I replaced each Nucleo icon and text with appropriate content.
The final steps I took were primarily aesthetic based, mainly focusing on the transparency and color settings of the text and icons to match the actual menu list on the Lyft app (pictured above.)
This exercise taught me the ease with which menus can be created using symbols and override functions, as well as it introduced me to the Nucleo app which is a very useful tool for finding diverse and universal icons.
