Preparing Appetizers

Bring in the Flavor

The focus of this project was to design an app to teach young adults how to cook healthy.
This project was created through the Google Professional UX Certification 

The Problem: 

Young adults transitioning from college to work life have difficulty adjusting to cooking meals - especially healthy ones - for themselves. 

The Goal: 

Our goal was to make that transition easier by laying out recipes and steps for healthy meals aimed towards this demographic.

Through this clickable hi-fidelity prototype, users were able to experience the design

and provide a final round of feedback.

Impact: 

With my design, users will be able to learn more how to cook and maintain their health.

Next Steps:

1. Complete a final usability study 

2. Pass design along to developers

3.Show the final product to the client and launch!
