5 Ideas In 180 Seconds. Design Challenge: A Different Menu For An App

I’ve seen more apps adopt the push-in menu that Facebook has. I’m not sure who started it, but it seems to be one of the main options to provide menu to the users. I’m gonna give myself a design challenge today. My challenge would be: “In what ways might we create a different menu for an iPhone app?”


Inspirations can come from anywhere, anything. Today is a public holiday in Singapore. We’re going to IKEA, and I’m gonna collect inspirations there. This is a good way to practice my creativity skill as well. I’ll update this post when I get there.

7.16 PM – I’ve taken some pictures. These can be used to trigger some menu ideas. I’ll sketch some when I get home. We’re gonna have a dinner now.


It’s 1.40 AM – the next day. I’ve pushed myself to complete the video below, sketching the ideas in 3 minutes.
