In January 2017 I joined the team within NewDealDesign working on Reali, a Palo Alto based real estate startup. Their iOS app, designed earlier in the year, was gaining traction. Enough to invest in building out the Android app. I was assigned as the sole designer on the project: adapting the team’s iOS designs to function and feel at home on Android.
Converting iOS to Android
The existing iOS design already borrowed heavily from Google’s
Material Design, with cards, headers and elevation, typography,
etc., so the project was relatively straightforward. The work
ended up being in the details: little updates to spacing,
different patterns in navigation and form design. All the designs
were tested at multiple screen sizes, to account for the diversity
in Android devices.
