PROJECTS

Freeable

Freelance - 2018

In a challenge on how to improve mental health in Canada, I wanted to provide a safe space where people living with depression can journal their feelings and find activities to keep their minds distracted when experiencing an episode.

With the idea of increasing community engagement and improving people's commute, I designed a prototype of a carpool mobile app, that accepts tokens of appreciation in exchange for rides. The project was done in 4 weeks applying the design thinking process.  

The app's process included: Research, A Brief, Personas, Job Stories, Information Architecture and Users' Flow, Sketches, Wireframes, Branding, Prototype, Testing and an Alfa App (in collaboration with a developer).  A sprint plan was used to stay organized and meet project's deadlines. 

This project had an emphasis on user research and analysis and was designed using: Surveys, Clarity Canvas, Card Sorting, A Brief, Personas, Empathy Maps, Journey Maps, Facilitation, Low and High fidelity Wireframes, Testing and Iterating.
