Motto: PM for Graphics Requests / Questions
So I have been teaching myself some Adobe XD and thought to recreate a spotify-like interface with a few tweaks. I'm open to feedback, let me know what you think.

aXD is useful for design. Though execution is always best to have some base knowledge of what you're working with in the backend.

though i suppose i could give pointers.

UI Overhaul.
  • user friendly before looks
  • use basic bootstrap knowledge to get better "visual" looks on the UI
    • you can tell where you focused more on and where you didn't first impressions last a long way.
    • bootstrap knowledge generally just makes a live concept better. animations and other fun stuff.

  • use better colors (everyone has a preference)
    • first impressions once more.
    • darker palettes must stick with that theme. major characteristic changes can drive a user away on impression and user overall.
      • light login screen?
      • dark playlist(assuming) screen?
      • cloud like about page?

Fixing the messy side of things
  • stay consistent. this is key with the color palette.
  • always think user friendly over functionality richness
  • don't focus so much on aesthetics until you know what you're going for.
  • better QA choices.
    • font
    • alignment
    • consistency

  • learn about the concepts you're working with prior. UX design is something you should look into before divulging into interpretative work.

Final thoughts

  • While i think the concept is interesting, you could certainly improve in several areas and a lot of that really comes down to
    • learning the software
    • design production
    • design choices
    • background experience.

    I say the last point lightly, as there is no real need for background experience but some knowledge in
    • application design
    • UX design
    • modern UI concepts
    • approach are major key players in what you're going to want to look for overall.
