A conceptual E-commerce app for selling amazing and tasty donuts.
Offers a simple and unique user experience by using fun gestures
UX / UI App Design
Holon Institute of Technology
We were asked to create and design an E-commerce application with emphasis on user experience and visual language.
I chose to combine 2 of my biggest passions: design and sweets! and from that the idea of "Gonuts" was born.
My 2 main challenges while working on this project were:
Design an app with a simple user experience that allows the user to intuitively and enjoyably using 'known to all' gestures
Showcase the wide variety of donuts that the shop offers- put the donuts in the center as the main and most important exhibit
& The Solutions
In order to create the process that the user supposed to go through, while using the app, I searched for information about prominent and main gestures in nowadays:
Gestures- first row:
Tap, Double Taps, Swipe,
and Zoom in
Gestures- second row:
Rotate, Zoom Out, Scroll and Tap and Hold

An overview of these gestures got me to decided that the "Gonuts" app, first of all, emphasizes user experience- slide, tap and swipe will be the main gestures which make it easy, fun and also very similar to the way we all use apps these days.
Second, I put a lot of effort into the visual presentation of the products: big, bold and appetizing!The images of the products must be clear and those that reflect and emphasize visibility in order to attract the buyer and strengthen his desire to make a purchase.
Before i started designing the app, at the planning phase, i thought that the app will be targeted for a wide range of ages, since donuts in particular and sweet in general desirable at any age, at least as i believe.
But during the app design process and after i chose the name of the store, the logo and the branding i found out that it will be appeal to the younger audience who will understand in seconds how to use the app.
I define my ideal user as someone who is always looking for the "next thing" and as an early adopter, experienced on social media, tends to try and experiment , loves food - "foodie".
One Screen -
While designing the app screens, I had a hard time struggling with the design of the home screen. My main idea was to create simple and easy interface which let the user a fast access to all the categories.
I wanted this screen to be with the same flow as the rest of the app screens and to include a simple swiping or scrolling action.
The final result (shown in the ui screens section) turn out very intuitive and fun- just swipe the donuts right or left to enter to all the menu categories.
