Arches National Park Mobile App

The Arches National Park App is a mobile application designed to enhance the visitor experience at Arches National Park. With a focus on aesthetics and user-friendly features, the app aims to provide a comprehensive guide that is as beautiful as it is functional. The app features a unique design inspired by the natural arch formations found within the park. It integrates these iconic shapes into the user interface, creating a visually cohesive and engaging experience.

My primary objectives were to:

  • Improve navigation within the park for visitors.

  • Create a more aesthetically visual app that represents the natural beauty of the park.

  • Encourage exploration by highlighting lesser-known areas.

  • Streamline the planning process for trips to the park.


The design process involved:

  • Research: Understanding the needs of park visitors through research and current experiences.

  • Ideation: Brainstorming sessions to conceptualize the app's features and design.

  • Prototyping: Creating wireframes and high-fidelity prototypes of the app.

  • User Testing: Conducting usability tests to refine the interface and features.

  • Implementation: Developing the final product based on feedback and test results.


Design Decisions

  • Arch-Inspired Aesthetics: To mirror the park's identity and create a memorable user experience.

  • Interactive Maps: To provide real-time navigation and information about points of interest.

  • Educational Content: To inform users about the park's ecosystem and preservation efforts.

  • Personalized Itineraries: To assist users in planning their visit according to their preferences.

Lessons Learned

  • The importance of user feedback in shaping a product that truly meets user needs.

  • Balancing aesthetic appeal with functionality is key to user satisfaction.

  • Continuous iteration is essential for refining the user experience.

The Arches National Park App represents a step forward in blending design with utility in the realm of travel and exploration apps. We invite you to download the app and experience the wonders of Arches National Park in a whole new way.
