Salad Days Los Angeles Gardening App
Responsibilities: ux design, ui & visual design, user flows, user stories, research, usability testing, wireframes
Salad Days Los Angeles was a UX design product focusing on three major concepts to increase gardening as an activity in the younger generation.
- Location-based plant planner with an heirloom, or open-pollinated seed recommendation system similar to fab.com (email based).
- Visual gardening community building through an automatic feed that is either location or time based.
- A very simple documentation system when the app is landscape for capturing stages of a plant, building out expected timelines for future gardening.
Ultimately, the idea was to create an app that would help serve as a treatment to urban food deserts of Los AngelesThe product was a result of a 10 week summer school course in UX Design at UCLA Extension under professor Marc Mertens of Seso. The class involved giving weekly presentations in different formats to share design process, challenges, decision points, and product pitch. Here are all of the decks of presentations I gave during the class. You can see how the product changed from a field notes meets basecamp type of product, into a much simpler community building mobile product.
