Kim Daniel Arthur got their new app design by running a design contest:
Create a communications app for children with special needs
Check out Kim Daniel Arthur's App design contest…
Superspeak is a communication tool for children without verbal language. In Superspeak children can use images and sounds to communicate their needs and desires to the people around them.
TARGET AUDIENCE We have 2 target audiences: 1. Children in very early stage of development cognitively who lack the ability to speak. (Comparable to 1-3 year old child) Typically the inability to speak is a result of a diagnosis such as Autism, Aphasia, Apraxia or other language impairments. 2. In addition to the child being the main user of the app the parent will also be a heavy user of the admin interface within the app. DESIGN APPROACH We aim to keep things as simple and useable as possible, removing features rather than adding. Together with the simplicity we want the UI to be rewarding to use and feel responsive and playful (without coming in the way). Given our target audience the part of the app that is used by the child it is extra important that there are as few visual distractions as possible, limiting the amount of gradients/edges/shadows to a minimum in order to focus on the content itself. Each child is unique and has their unique challenges, so our UI needs to be very customisable in terms of colour, size and complexity. Our gaming heritage inspires us to make motivational systems and reward structures within the app and we also aim to let them app, although a functional tool, hint towards elements in gaming through transitions/bounces and similar. Again without going over the top. VISUAL APPROACH SHOULD BE: √ Minimalistic √ Clean √ Flat √ Friendly √ Instant √ Large buttons/elements √ Rewarding visual feedback
See the application description, flow chart and the 5 example screens that are shown at the bottom in the attached PDF file
What to avoid
WHAT OUR VISUAL APPROACH IS NOT: x Although we are game inspired our visuals are not a circus act, they are not over the top and busy x We try as much as possible to stay away from busy textures ala wood and metal, but rather go for a minimal clean and simple look and feel x This is not a techy/geeky app

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their app design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Kim Daniel Arthur collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
