A creative text editor
Project Spark is a small personnal project I'm working on since 2017, on my free time. It's a creative text editor, minimalist and focused on the experience. I didn't have the chance to study UX in university so it's a good way for me to learn about it and also about interfaces.
Inspired by Ommwriter, Project Spark is an attempt to improve it with modern technologies while keeping an immersive experience.
Why Spark ?
The core idea of the project is to create a space, free from distraction and dedicated to creativity. That's why I chose to orientate the name and the story around the idea of pure creation which is often related to fire and light. The word "spark" was chosen because it's used to define the begining of any big idea. It's the "Eureka" of your mind. This software is not meant for full editing or books, but to find ideas and be creative. It's supposed to put your brain in the right condition to let it be free and open to creation.
This is the first draft of the interface. I'm still working on it but so far I like the way it looks. I try to keep a balance between a minimalistic approach and a friendly usability. For now it's standing by, due to a lack of free time. But I will continue to work on it as soon as I find the time.
