We developed a brand new application that aimed to create awareness and motivate people to adopt a sustainable behavior.
The app presents automatically one task per day for the user to accomplish, these tasks will be simple ones but that have a positive outcome in the environment, that educates the user and shows how easy and simple it can be to perform actions that do not harm, or are less harmful to the environment.
There will also be a community aspect to it, where users will be able to share the tasks they have accomplished as well as earn titles depending on how many or which tasks they perform. Users will also be partner with friends in order to perform group tasks.
Working in teams of six, we were tasked with dreaming up a game idea based on a given theme, and with five to ten minutes of game content. In the 48-hour design jam, our team decided to do a maze game in unity. After outlining a design plan, we draw on their expertise and abilities to produce a functioning prototype.
As an interface designer, I chose the traditional Chinese style to design our game. Because our game’s name is Inner Peace. I wanted to use Chinese ink painting style to create the atmosphere. And our maze is based on the Yin and Yang pattern.
Out project is an IOS application that combines a easy to use running application with a fun casual game.My role in our team was the character design. Since we want to target young people. We decided that our avatar should be funny and colorful.
In our app users can choose their characters and that character will be used both in the running interface and the game.
At first, I drew several concepts, and the whole team decided one style.
Since we have 3 designers in our team. It was a challenge to integrate our different style. So I overcame that by studying the other two designs and created characters that would integrate well.
Since it was the first time that I worked with people from different backgrounds and countries.
So it was a valuable opportunity to learn from them and how to work with them.
