Throw Something Together: Material Icon & App Illustrations


I worked with the developer of Throw Something Together on the UI of his app. What was originally 5 simple buttons on a screen grew into something really nice to use, as well as to look at. I designed the following illustrations to depict the various categories of food within the app. I helped the dev create an intuitive UI that was material to the best of his programming abilities, and I also redesigned the icon to conform to Material Guidelines.


The App icon, featuring a recipe book with a magnifying glass to signify searching through recipes. The icon was simplified for phone screens, this is the one featured larger on the play store.
