The Vagina Club is a inclusive, non intrusive free app in partnership with TeenVogue and The Case For Her, giving those with vaginas safe access to information surrounding their genitals. The concept came from researching into the issue of those with vaginas having further factors hindering them from a good sexual education – separate fromContinue reading “D&Ad: TeenVogue Summary”
I realised I hasn’t input these into my blog whilst I was going along. These are some of the hand drawn elements I was thinking of using within the rebrand, the initial sketches of the new logo and notes about how one would move though the webpage or app.
I kept most of my annotations the same to my first presentation, just with tweaks where needed, same with my accessibility pages I just changed the content to suite the rebrand. I am much much happier with it now. I would like to win a pencil lol. Comparison glow up !!
Using the new colour scheme and design features of my rebrand, I’ve been trying to work them into an app design. I want this app to be a merge of the features I used in my first app design and those of the website design I did. I want the app to have the safetyContinue reading “New App Layouts”
I’m not happy with where this rebrand is going in terms of the format being a website. Things have got really difficult because of covid-19 and I’m struggling to focus on my work at the moment. I’ve been struggling with the website design so I think I’m going to revert back to an app asContinue reading “Don’t like the website. going back to an app”
I played around with some colour schemes but my favourite is this one. I think there’s a nice balance of feminine but not uber girly with this colour palette. I also created some hand drawn elements which I think looks quite nice. I drew these out then took them into illustrator.
I picked a typeface called Bluu Next, I still wanted the word vagina to stand out. The accompanying typeface is Neue Haas Grotesk Display Pro. I decided to add an extra safety feature to the project. I began thinking about when child line had a feature to completely change the content of the webpage toContinue reading “New Logo Type + important new feature”
I started by creating a mood board of things I liked. I created some colour palettes I could potentially use. I began this process just as things kicked off with Corona, I was planning on getting the whole rebrand done within a week butttt it took me over a month in the end with allContinue reading “Start of the rebrand + Corona”
so, the more I look at this design, the more I hate it. I think the colours are quite childish and the pdf looks unprofessional with the coloured backgrounds. Also not sure on the Vagina Club logo type . I like the concept – just not my realisation. Also I spoke to a staff memberContinue reading “Feedback + Personal Reflection”
It was very hard to explain the app in not so many words but I think I did ok, some of it is still wordy but I think its absolutely necessary to keep it in as its needed to understand the purpose of the app.
For accessibility I was suggested I created content to be shown on instagram. I mocked up some pages and a story, I decided that I used my contraception content and then leave the other subject areas to be app example pages. I originally created The Vagina Club its own instagram page but then after speakingContinue reading “Accessibility”
As I had already created my layout pages and illustrations, I needed to re format them to fit an iPhone size. I played around with a few different variations and edited my designs here and there but I think I have got to a point where I am happy. I prefer the logo on itsContinue reading “Content + Menu + Landing Page”
https://www.wired.com/story/best-womens-health-apps-2018/ https://dribbble.com/shots/1360884-Gif-Animation In terms of layout/design of The Vagina Club app, I want it to be simple. not too fancy , not too complex, the app is meant to be easy to use, easy to understand – ultimately accessible to everyone. The mobile banking app design by Victa Wille is very sleek – aesthetically itsContinue reading “App Design Research”
Feedback from Danielle: change name – not inclusive enough, since it’s about the vagina, include the word vagina? format being pdf doesn’t work and teenvogue doesn’t print anymore so no need for printable asset would work better as a collaborative app Reflecting on the feedback : happy to change the name, I wasn’t sure ifContinue reading “Feedback + name change”
This is the kind of look, layout, style I’m working on Each info page will be accompanied by an illustration and all info is presented in a friendly non intimidating tone
Thrush Sex Contraception Safe sex toys I am happy with how these turned out. I think humour is a good element to have within this guide as it normalises each subject and makes it less intimidating.
I went back to the drawing board and had another think about how I want my Guide to look. I started looking at menus as a way to present information. They’re nice to look at, simple yet full of information, I am going to try emulating this style of presenting info within my guide. InContinue reading “New aesthetic”
Honestly… I don’t even know what I was doing, these are awful lol I tried to put something together, hated it, tried to change the colours, still hated it. I’m going to go back to the drawing board and burn these designs
I started these illustrations for each section of my guide. The underwear for talking about discharge, thrush and what’s normal. Contraception and normalising vulvas/vaginas. Various female figures for using in the sex & wellness areas for the guides I actually am not that happy with how they turned out but I’m gonna put them intoContinue reading “First Illustrations”
I really like the pink red white aesthetic, it’s feminine but with a control over the colours it’s not too girly. I’m going to experiment with this

My idea is to make a guide or handbook for all girls & non binaries but mostly those who have factors that hinder their access to the sexual education needed to have safe & healthy sex/relationships and healthy relationships to their own bodies. The guide would cover many different essential topics currently missing from theContinue reading “My Idea”
I sent out a survey to the specifyed age group on the brief, via my personal instagram as I felt people would be more willing to talk about sensitive areas such as these on a platform with a personal feel. I got a really good and varied response from the girls. The feedback is broadContinue reading “Survey Feedback”
In Camden there is a Vagina Museum, I visited it with Charlene this week. My visit was amazing, I learned so much and I truly believe that this knowledge is essential and should be widespread. The museum provided in depth facts covering all aspects and topics relating to vaginas and vulvas, this has spurred meContinue reading “The Vagina Museum”
I thought starting my research with finding the mission statement of Teen Vogue would help me set the tone of my project as it has to fit with theirs. It is pretty essential to get this right so I will consider this throughout my project process. Finding out the average age of the Teen VogueContinue reading “Teen Vogue: Research”
I was initially drawn to the Penguin brief and I also debated doing the BBC brief too however after going to the tutorials for each, I didn’t immediately start having ideas which is unlike me. The next week I sat in on the Teen Vogue tutorial and felt much more enganged and passionate about theContinue reading “Teen Vogue – How I arrived at my idea.”
