Fundit charity screens
The Fundit app was a way for users to not only create and complete challenges to help charities, it was a way for users to learn and build better connections with them. Through trust and complete transparency users could engage with charities on a deeper level and do their part in giving back. These screens highlight how a user would explore different charities as well as learn about what they do and what challenges are available.
Fundit - leader board and profile screens
These screens both had a focus on keeping the user motivated to take part in challenges so they continue to support charities. Currently no charity is able to show what an individual does for their cause overall, thus the Fundit profile became a page, which highlighted all the hard work people put in to support the causes they care about. Whereas the leader board showed the effort put into individual challenges and encouraged a bit of healthy competition.
Fundit explore screens
I wanted to create a way users could easily filter the app to explore and discover challenges and charities which most excited them. Having the option to filter and see what your friends were up to or being able to see only active challenges could encourage users to take part sooner. The design needed to be simple, modern with a pop of colour and illustration as I wanted the experience to feel wholesome, exciting and honest.
Fundit splash pages
Dynamic bright design. I wanted there to be a light-hearted energy when users opened up the Fundit app. The idea was to create simple yet lively patterns, which would become animated as soon as the service was opened. Making sure there was a certain level of fun and energy injected into the UI from the very beginning.
Our BBC illustration
This illustration was part of an animation created for a D&AD brief. Working with another student, we developed a service where the BBC could help families reconnect with 16-24 year olds once they begin to move out and leave home. Please see the full animation on my website.
An app for 17-25 year olds providing a breakdown of all black box features, and offering advice on the go. A way to incentivise users to drive safely. A black box is used by insurance companies to track driving data more efficiently enabling young drivers a cheaper way to get insured and encourages them to stay safe.
Unboxed - the concept
The app consisted on a Dashboard, Map and Journey review, to provide the user with the most seamless consistent experience.
The dashboard provided a way users could quickly see what they scored on each drive, as well as how much money they had lost or saved through driving.
The Map is so users can have a SatNav, which can assist them on their journeys and provide them with an opportunity to rectify their errors and drive in a safer manner. It does this by flagging any problem areas which will effect their score.
The Journey Review enabled users to get a detailed breakdown of their drive. This showed how they scored individually on each of the black box features and provided a clear explanation of how to improve on their next drive. It was important that the UI/UX felt friendly and not controlling, it was there to help and motivate them to drive safely.
I am focused on finding a user-centric solution. I want to create design which empowers people and provides them with memorable experiences.
My passion for service design has flourished whilst at Loughborough University. Being able to experiment with illustration, branding and prototyping has enabled me to develop a technical, all rounded skill set which I can't wait to develop once entering the industry. I want to continue to progress my knowledge of creating seamless and meaningful design for users and hope to start a professional career as a junior UX designer for a creative agency.
