Mobile App Design

My Role: This is a solo project created as a design challenge, as a part of the interview process for a fintech company in which my responsibilities included:

  • Personas
  • Synthesing Research
  • High Fidelity Prototypes
  • User Interface Design

My Tools: Adobe XD, Illustrator, Photoshop

Timeline: 3 days

The Challenge:

Studies show that reliable access to food impacts 100s of millions of people worldwide with on average 1 in 7 Americans relying on food banks and other public and government services. Assuming technology can play a role, design a digital solution that helps food-insecure households across the country find reliable access to food .

Design Process

I was given a design challenge brief at the beginning of this project. I created the project based on this design brief.

The Solution

The U.S. spends more than 100 billion dollars on hunger relief every year.

Despite this fact, 50 million Americans are still food insecure.

1 in 7 Americans rely on food banks & government assistance.

This is why I developed Find Food Now, a mobile application that allows users to find free and low cost food options in their local area.

Persona

Most people including the impoverished have a cell phone, so our mobile app is ideal for college students, the homeless, the working poor, large families and single moms like Selena Summers.

Selena Summers - Age (28) Single mom of 2 kids, unemployed due to Covid-19.

Design Constraints

  • All currently available technology solutions are fair game
  • Accessible within rural and metropolitan areas
  • Limits human-to-human direct contact
  • Makes business sense to food producers / providers

Lessons Learned

  • In hindsight, I probably would have made the onboarding process a "how it works" tutorial, as opposed to having the food insecurity statistics.
  • Based on feedback by the panel, I probably would have chosen a gray color, and not the blue.
  • There is so much room for growth with this app. It can be monetized by partnering with food rescue companies and restaurants and grocery stores that want to sell their left over or soon to be expired food, instead of throwing it away. This will save millions of dollars in wasted food yearly.

Interested in Working Together?

I am currently seeking full-time permanent REMOTE positions. However, I am very willing to relocate to the DC Metro area, Austin, Texas or internationally for the right opportunity! I am not interested in part-time, freelance, contract, or temporary positions.
