Wellness Project — SMOGA
Despite the vast availability of personal metrics and health apps, people struggle to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
You will be required to conduct user research to understand people’s relationship with mental, physical, and emotional well-being to develop a tool that will drive them to action.
The National Wellness Institute wants designers to re-imagine how people can adopt and maintain a routine that enhances their well-being.
The tool can be focused in any category related to personal wellbeings, such as (but not limited to): exercise and fitness, eating/diet, meditation, time management, etc.
The only requirement is that it tracks the user’s progress and pushes them to commit to a healthier lifestyle.
The UI should reflect a fresh, updated image
It was an individual project, so I was all alone. 🥲
START TO PROCESS
There are a lot of smokers around me. Most of them tried to quit many times, but it didn’t work for them. And I met some people who quit smoking with yoga and breathing exercises. So I decided to create an app ‘Quit Smoking with Yoga’. First I started with the business analysis and found out that there is no app with yoga and quit smoking tracker feature in one app. That’s why I made the comparison with popular yoga and quit smoking apps.
INTERVIEWS AND SURVEY
Then I started the interviews. Results were quite interesting, one person already quit smoking with exercise. He said he tried many ways to quit but all the methods were unsuccessful, so he decided to do exercises instead of smoking, and he said it was the best way to forget about cigarettes. Then the other person said, whenever she craves smoking, she just wears her sports clothes and go to running, it was helping her, she said.
Even though they think yoga would be a powerful way to quit smoking but they don’t have time to go to a yoga studio.
And survey results were not so different than the interviews. That’s why I decided to go into action and started building my app, SMOGA.
AFFINITY AND EMPATHY MAP
So, I made an affinity map, I wrote down the difficulties and came up with possible solutions.
To empathize the user, I also used an empathy map method, and all these lead me to the problem and hypothesis statement.
PROBLEM AND HYPOTHESIS STATEMENT
I have observed that the competitor apps are not meeting what user wants. Such as; quit smoking with yoga, which is causing time-wasting and lack of motivation. My app was designed to help smokers to quit smoking with yoga.
I believe creating this app for people who want to stop smoking, will achieve a healthier life. I will know I am right or wrong with qualitative-quantitative feedback and tests.
USER PERSONA — USER JOURNEY — STORY BOARD — USER STORIES
Based on all the researches, I created my user persona, Adore Delano.
And her journey!
Well.. Then to make things easier for myself, I sketched her daily life.
And the user stories…
Time for some brainstorming. Worst Ideas always so helpful for me to find the best idea…
After all, to create my app, I used MoSCoW method. I had a parking lot on the left which made it easier to decide the features and create the app.
LO-FI AND MID-FI WIREFRAMING
I started doing some sketching for Lo-Fi which lead me to Mid-Fi.
MOODBOARD AND STYLETILE
Yes! Before we go to Hi-Fi, I want to show you my moodboard and style tile. It was a great way to create my Hi-Fi.
To test the desirability, I also created another survey and asked the people what this moodboard make them feel. Here is the result👇🏾
Now you can check out my style tile, and we can move to the best part, Hi-Fi.♥️
HI-FI WIREFRAMING AND PROTOTYPE
Yes, here we are! Here are the Hi-Fi sign-up screens of SMOGA. Before you sign up, the app asks some questions to onboard you.
Please watch the video I recorded for you, an interactive high-fi prototype! If you want to try it and test it by yourself, please contact me!
