For this project, I had a week to work on an e-learning app for either Android or iOS by myself. They gave us three pre-made proto-personas and we could use them to guide our ways across the creation of the prototype.
So let's just jump into it, shall we?

Stalking the competition

To start off I did some benchmarking on companies that offer similar or the same services. The ones I researched more deeply were Coursera, Doméstica, Glovo, and Just eat.
The information that was obtained was that:

  • All the content was divided into sections.
  • They always listen to the users and recommend…

In this project we had to design an app to help people create or break a habit, and one of the first things that came to mind was about my plants. So many people I know struggle to keep their plants healthy and hydrated, so I decided to dig a little deeper and discover more information.

Interviews and surveys

I started organizing how the interviews would go. What questions did I want answered? How would I ask them without giving leading information?
At the end, I came up with a different prompt questions:

  • Tell me about the last time you forgot to water…


For the 3rd pre-work challenge, we’ll be evaluating the usability of a traveling app that will take us to make design suggestions to improve the experience of the user.

But before that, I want you to get into the shoes of a group of 4 friends (20–40 years old) that love to travel. For a long time you’ve wanted to travel the world and visit the Seven Wonders of the Millennium. So next summer you are planning on going to the Coliseum in Rome, Italy.

You want to visit Rome for a week, from the first of March 2022 till…


The second challenge of the pre-work is to wireframe the screens of an app of your choice. Following this medium post you’ll see the steps I took and the final result. I hope you enjoy it, and I’d love to hear your constructive criticism.

Instagram

Instagram is a social media app owned by Facebook and used by near 1000 million people making it the 6th most used social media app in the world. It’s principal use is to share videos and pictures, but you can also use it to chat with people. …


“Cities are complicated — we make them usable” that’s the slogan of the App called Citymapper, that, as it says, helps people navigate through their cities using public transport. Once you enter your location and your destination, Citymapper suggests different options to get there. With every option it tells you the estimated time and the public transport you can use, but also it tells you alternatives to arrive and other information.

In an interview I asked people if this type of app was useful to them. Most of them agreed that they were, but sometimes they had confusions with the…

Not much to say, just a young soul trying to make a name for herself and find good friends on the way. Simple and sweet as can be.
