There will be various sizes of pizzas and it will feature a smaller sized pizza to customize and order for lunch. DDP will have a wide array of toppings to choose from, like fancy meats, various cheeses, artichokes, pineapple, arugula, pesto sauce, oil sauce, etc. There will also be a pasta dish special daily, one dish per day.

Wireframing & Prototyping

With the proper planning, I were able to confidently move into creating wireframes for the app. I took the decision to focus more on the functionality and structure of the app, opting for low-fidelity wireframes with very little detail. Ultimately, I could add design elements in later, what was important for our users, was that the product (above all) was clear and simple.

Design

The design of the app and site was meant to stay light and fresh feeling. I wanted to stick to traditional food coloursbut also wanted something more hip. I decided to go with a very simple layout, letting the images of food carry the wieght of the design.

Results

I am pleased with the results but have some aspects I would like to revisit. The timeline for this project didn't allow for a lot or User Testing and Prototyping, something I will be digging into deeper during the next design iteration.
