Color palette and typography
User is presented with a choice of literature genres and is asked to pick a few that he enjoys reading most. It plays a crucial role in analysing user’s preferences to optimize book club suggestions. The multiple choice is visually complemented with icons.
On the Explore page user can find new clubs of his interest. The clubs are divided in sections: Recommended for you, Trending and New. I wanted to display the name of the book that the club is reading this month and a Join button so that users have an option of joining the club quickly and easily, without having to open a full book club page.
Home screen shows user book picks for the current month from all of the book clubs that he is a member of. From there user can open book description, choose to add a book to his "To-Read" List, or to Skip it. Once the decision for all of the books has been made, Home Screen is now defaulted to show "To-Read" List, where user can tick off the books that he has read.
Book Club Screens
Book Club screens provides all information about the club: club picture, name, number of members and their profile images, etc. It has a call to action button to join the club, as well as club description written by club organiser to give a better idea of what kind of books will be read and discussed in this club. Further on, users can view the current book this club is reading: its cover image, title and author and a rating that other app users gave it.
