Scenario

You were hired as a freelance UX designer by a company making a new mobile maps app (competitors are Google Maps, Waze, and Apple Maps).

They would like you to start sketching out general concepts for this app. They want to look into things like page layouts and get some rough ideas to start showing stakeholders and potential users.

Task

Create three wireframes for this maps app showing: (1) the homepage (what users land on when they open up the app on their phones), (2) what searching for a new location looks like, and (3) the interface for giving the user real-time driving directions. Annotate your wireframe: point out specific pieces of it to give the thinking behind what you've made.

Extra Credit: Create 2 more wireframes showing (1) a detailed view of a specific location, and (2) what saving a location to a favorites list looks like.
