User Interface Design Document
Approach to User Interface Design Document
In your final project you will design a user interface from scratch using all that you have learned in the class.  Think carefully and leverage all aspects of the course.
You are going to design a multi-platform application that has a desktop, and a web and mobile interface for a property rental company, called UMGC Property Rentals.  Property owners pay UMGC Property Rentals to find tenants for their apartments and houses.  Each property has:

  • Address
  • Square footage
  • # of bedrooms
  • # of full baths
  • # of half baths
  • Photos (1 or more)
  • Features (1 or more and the application needs to be able to add/update/delete the list of possible features for a property)
  • Rent per month

When property owners contact UMGC Property Rentals, all of the information about a property will be entered by UMGC Property Rentals office staff.  This should be a Desktop application.  People looking for a place to rent, should be able to search for rental properties using the Web and Mobile applications.
Make sure that you review the sample User Interface Design Documents.  You can use one of those as example.
Using Pencil, a Rapid Prototyping Tool
For developing the design, you will be using the Pencil software. There are many tools used to create user interfaces.  Pencil was selected because it is free, downloadable, and multiplatform (running on Windows, MAC and Linux).  You can download Pencil at
The deliverable for this assignment consists of your design of the UMGC Property Rentals user interface. Submit a Word document, in which you must include the UI screen shots. Use the provided User Interface Design Template.
