Pâtisserie

A fun way to explore desserts

Patisserie is an iPad e-magazine on desserts designed for kids. Inspired by my favorite dessert - cupcakes, I decided to design a magazine for kids who love sweets to start learning how to make some for themselves! Different from most existing dessert magazines, I adopted interactions and little games that appeal to kids. Bright colors, vibrant layouts, easy navigation, and clean look add up to the overall design.

Competitive Analysis

The competitive analysis helped me find out potential opportunity available for dessert e-magazine. And what are each magazine's strengths and weaknesses.

As we can see from the competitive analysis, most of the existing dessert magazine are designed for women or housewives. Therefore there’s a niche market for dessert magazine for children.

Persona

I created a persona to represent the user type within my targeted demographic. This gave a clear picture of the target users’ expectations and behavior pattern, guiding me to design features and functions that fit into their need.

Color Palette & Moodboard

I created a mood board and color palette to envision the look and feel of the e-magazine I would like to design. Since I decided to target little girls, I picked the color scheme and typefaces that are more appealing to girls than boys. 

The Design

This e-magazine is designed for iPad, so the main navigation is swiping horizontally between pages. I used bright colors and vibrant layouts to keep kids engaged during the experience. They can also share the results and recipes with their friends to show off their talent!
