The National Post mobile redesign was a 1 day project to understand mobile useability.

Material Design

My design with Material Design applied Hamburger Menu
The current app uses a bottom line menu navigation system that takes up screen real estate. This design uses a more modern “hamburger menu” to give users more options, quickly.

My design with Material Design applied Readability
Readability should be the focus of any news app. Emphasis was given to typography, font size, line spacing, and tracking/kerning to make the text as easy-to-read as possible.
