Patrick Galego's value is found in his superpower ability to identify and execute creative solutions to any project related to web, mobile and product design. As a recent graduate from Humber’s Web Design & Interactive Media program where he graduated with honors, Patrick’s focused intent was to develop a skill set that would help his future employer succeed. He was the sole designer of an interactive display for Humber’s Applied Research and Innovation department in his second year. He specializes in UX and UI and subsequently founded a app called Watermelon in which he was a finalist for in Humber’s 2018 Launch Me Competition to receive startup funding. His pursuit of knowledge continues as a regular volunteer at major conference events such as FITC, and is a participant of various meet-ups and industry events by leading agencies and associations in Toronto. Patrick’s goal is to find a position at a leading agency, start-up, or product company doing what he loves best: finding design solutions to problems.

Creative is a community of web and graphic designers, illustrators, icon artists,
typographers, logo designers, and other creatives showing their
work and projects through a social app experience.

Inspiration for my app came from apps like Instagram, Dribbble and Apple Music. Dribbble is a place for designers to show off their designs, and Instagram is much of the same with the difference being that it allows users to share their personal life or brand through photos. Creative is a hybrid of the two as it combines similarities from both into a new exciting social app for creatives.

The three colour palette consists of a vibrant red, a sharp but slightly dulled black, and bright blue that was used to create contrast, and to highlight specifics in the app. The simple palette is minimal but sophisticated. The black is the dominant colour in the palette which helps balance the vibrant red and blue creating a striking bold design. The black draws attention and highlights focal elements like text and icons. The red and blue is used for call to action buttons with blue breaking up the high contrasting colours with a gentler and lighter tone.
