Chapter 1 –––––– BRING IT ON
Create a fictional interactive mobile app that encourages individuals to become more mindful of their ecological impact by limiting the amount of food they waste.
Chapter 3 –––––– MY IDEA
Create the SAVE FOOD App
A Conceptual interactive prototype application allowing consumers to buy discounted soon-to-be perishable food items from grocery stores and unusually shaped fruits and vegetables from local farmers. This app will help consumers, grocers and farmers to become more conscious of their environmental footprint by reducing food waste and saving money.

Chapter 4 –––––– WHERE DO I START?
1/2 Personas and storyboards

These insights help me understand user needs and behaviours and aid my decision-making and feature prioritization.

2/3 Userflows for each persona
Building my personas' user flow was crucial as it enabled me to develop an intuitive user experience by identifying and eliminating potential roadblocks. These user flows provided clarity and consistency in my app design and ensured that all necessary steps were included to maintain a cohesive experience.
