Project Goal

The goal was to design a note-taking app which appeals to casual note takers.

Target Audience

The target audience for the sketch note app is someone who likes to use their finger to draw quick sketch notes. They’re not interested in a structured note.

Research & Key Challenges

Research was performed by interviewing people who liked using real life sticky notes.

The key challenge was repeatedly resisting our own efforts at “gold plating”.

Initial Concepts

We started with real pencil and paper to immerse ourselves in the organic feel we wanted to preserve for the user. We decided to stick to square notes and simple shapes for the user interface and icons.


We asked friends and family to look at Sketch mockups, sized for their phones, to get their feedback. We took that feedback to inform further iterative work on the app.


A second version is currently in planning and design. We don’t have a release date yet.
