EasyMeasure is an app that measures distances using the iphone’s camera, accelerometer, and a little bit of trigonometry. I was given the opportunity to design an interface that would organize the features.

The initial goal was to create a set of interface icons that would be easily understandable. The icons were constantly tested against potential users for readability.
The main component of the app is the camera, so the camera’s view was treated as the dominant element with two unobtrusive graphic layers placed between it and the user.
The interface was consolidated into 3 major screens: the main screen, a help and settings area, and an area that would include saved measurements.

Icons that would be commonly used on the main screen were placed at the top closest to the thumb 
(on iPhone 5).
