DESIGN AGENT - TASHIA ORTIZ
The BECU banking app is something I use daily, and while functional, it makes the designer in me cry a little each time I open it. Banking apps aren't known to be beautiful, so as a design exercise I thought it would be fun to challenge myself to redesign the app as a portfolio piece.
While beauty was one of the primary goals for the redesign, people open a banking app to complete to-do list tasks. With that in mind another goal was to avoid adding any complexity or extra steps for the user.
After sketching things out I decided not to change much of the user flow and instead focus adjusting the visual design and clean up the layout. I went with a modern flat UI overlayed on a BECU Red gradient background in order to carry the brand color throughout the app. All of the UI elements became white, removing the drop shadows so everything is crisp and easy to read.
I also decided to add small delightful moment such as a personal "Welcome! (your name here)" message on sign in, and some iconography to make everyday tasks more fun.
