The Ripple Effect
As a part of the Advanced Interactive Design course at RIT, I designed an app to teach users about the water crisis in an interactive way. I had a research partner to collaborate with in Doha, Qatar. Together, we compared water usage, personal habits and the effects of the water crisis in our homes.
Throughout this process, I conducted interviews to understand my audience, researched water usage, completed card sorting activities and user testing to improve my designs.
The goal of this app is to provide facts about the user's personal water usage habits to hopefully inspire small changes. The prototype for the Ripple Effect is live.
The Ripple Effect was featured in the "My Mai: My Water, My Change" exhibition in VCUQatar.
