Creating an end-to-end iOS app for a cooking/recipe app to help home cooks discover more diverse cuisines
Home Cooks was born out of the need for more diversity in the western food publication world. Written by immigrants, Home Cook offers that authentic, home cooking experience that people seek when they are experiencing and learning about other cultures through food.
Enabling users to take the scenic route with a feature add-on to the most popular navigation app
With the increase of outdoor, socially-distant activities that is now the norm due to quarantine protocols, more and more people are taking walks, biking, and running to stay active. Based on user research, I've created a feature add-on for the Google Maps iOS app where users can search for nearby scenic routes when their goal is to explore, rather than look for the most efficient route from point A to point B.
Pilates with Go Chlo
Building a user-friendly class booking website for Chloe's pilates practice
The pandemic has forced many gyms and boutique fitness studios to close, including the pilates studio where Chloe worked. As such, she began hosting live Zoom classes 5 days a week where her Instagram followers all over the world could sign up via her link in bio. For this project, I designed a website that would make the booking process easier and provide her past and future clients a centralized place to access her pilates practice.
