Redesigning the United Flight Search Interface in Photoshop
Design | February 13th, 2014
Flying out of Boise, Idaho you don’t have a lot of options. There are only direct flights to a few cities and every itinerary has its downsides. Because of that I spend a lot of time using United’s advanced flight search.
I had two goals in redesigning this screen:
- To know how it could look and function.
- To teach designers how to use Photoshop.
In this post I’ve got a two-part video walking you through the redesign. These videos are the first half of the entire case study available in my upcoming course, Photoshop for Interface Design.

These videos take you halfway through the case study. The next two are coming next week. To make sure you get those sign up for the email list at the end of this page.
In the mean time, here’s what the final design looks like:
