As a part of a daily UI challenge I designed a weather app inspired by late 80’s 8-bit devices. Features include gradients that change based on time of day/weather, Idle animations for icons and a scrollable time of day temperature forecast. Just in case you miss a time when things were simpler.
The weather icons and details screen was heavily inspired by imagery made for devices that had limited color and resolution capabilities. I gave myself the restriction of only 3 or 4 frames worth of animation per icon. The design had to be incredibly simple and read quickly.
