The idea behind this app for the Center for Mindfulness (CFM) was to create a simple meditation app that users could use to have a short “mindfulness” (meditation) break. An important aspect of the app is tracking the user’s stress level before and after meditation, allowing CFM to gain analytics about the effectiveness of said meditation.

There were several iterations of the design; I wanted to create a simple design that users could easily select the time they wanted to meditate, and allow them to meditate right away. Since we had specified time intervals for the meditation, a simple grid was used showing the :30 second, 1:00 minute, 2:00 minute and custom duration times. After selecting the time, a stress level dialog would appear, and after the user selects their stress level, the meditation time appears and starts automatically.

For the design of the timer itself, a simple mask on the background image was selected to keep a minimalist design. As time progresses, the mask moves across the screen.

Research was done for the app icon, and a lot of the images associated with meditation involve flowers, so I created an abstract flower icon to be used with the app.

Eating Well

I was tasked with creating a design for this mobile app, whose focus is to help obese patients track their food intake, with the hope that they will be able to lose weight while doing so.

Up until now, a paper form is used to track dietary intake of patients, and the client wanted an easier way to track food intake, as well as allow their patients to be able to see their progress throughout the day, based on the thresholds set for each category.

The design I came up with allows users to see every food category that’s being tracked, and allows them to see their progress, as indicated by the progress bars below each category. Another important design consideration was being able to keep things simple and minimize the number of screens needed to view and update food intake. This was accomplished by being able to simply click on a category, increasing or decreasing a serving, and then saving. Some icons were used from Dribbble, and some were created from scratch to match the categories.

Insight is a concept app that I designed for UMass, the overall goal was to create a mobile app that would allow students, faculty, staff, and patients a one-stop shop to access the most important information on umassmed.edu, but optimized for a phone.

An important part of the concept was the calendar section, which was envisioned to be used by students to load their class schedules in an on-the-go mobile-friendly manner. Icons are the free Smashicons.
