In September 2020, Ashlyn Riambon, Ryan Hartanto, and I participated in the Adobe x Amazon Creative Jam. Alongside 600 other teams, we competed to make a tablet app that inspired high school students age 13-17 to #DiscoverDesign.
We ended up placing in the top 20, taking home an honorable mention for our work!
Design a tablet app (Android, Fire, iPad, etc) to provide a safe way for high school students (ages 13+) to #DiscoverDesign. This app should encourage students to:
Create a social media platform for high school students that allows them to discover different kinds of design. After taking a quiz that shows them what kinds of design they might be interested in, they are shown resources and given the tools to succeed in their fields of interest.
Although we weren't being evaluated on the type of research we conducted, we still knew it was important to create an app that spoke to the needs of the users. We sent out a short survey to people in our target audience – those ages 13 and up – to figure out what their biggest barrier was when it came to learning about design.
