3 main tabs, 3 main functions.

Saving words + adding notes.

Search function.

Finding and remembering words can be hard. wordsmithy. is a concept design for a dictionary app and word-finder that helps a user to pin down those pesky, elusive tip-of-the-tongue words through a search function and community forums, as well as notate, tag, and save words and definitions for future reference.


This project focuses on designing a tool that facilitates finding and organizing words and supplementary info (e.g. etymology, rhymes) for writers, English students, and all-around-word-nerds.

Wordsmithy//App Concept + UX/UI Design

//Concept & Ideation

Objective: Design a tool that smoothly and intuitively helps users find, save, and annotate words.

This project went through several stages of ideation, sketching, wireframing, and refinement. I created a moodboard to help in brainstorming functionality of the app, and to set the tone. Several stages of flowchart sketches, lo-fi wireframes, and hi-fi wireframes map out userflow and functionality.

Considering ease of user experience, and a smooth, intuitive design at every stage in the process is a priority. Much time is spent thinking about the most logical ways to organize and lay out the interface.

From wire-frame, to rough build, to full screen build out.
