Project

Animal Help Now App Redesign

Objective

The objective of this project was to find an app that is not user-friendly and redesign it. Based on the UI/ UX principles of usability, functionality, simplicity, accessibility and engagement, we needed to identify three functions to improve. Then, we needed to redesign the app to not only improve these functions, but also increase the overall user experience. 

Solution

I chose an app for animal emergencies. It was text-driven and filled with body copy. I used basic graphic elements to identify functions instead of the existing text, and made different scale contrasts between icons and text. Also, based on repeated testing, I simplified the app in significant ways to improve user experience. By making it easier for the user, it also became faster, which could save animals' lives.
