What is your SHIFT?
Discovering life beyond education. Learning through experience rather than a textbook, solving problems on the fly and making mistakes outside the comfort of the classroom.
Project Type : UX/UI , Design Research
When working in Victoria, I was much more connected toa the non-profit and volunteer community than I ever have been before. It made me notice something, which made sense at the time but got me increasingly frustrated:
There is very little organization for the services that are there to help people on the street, the people that need it the most.
To tackle this problem, and after learning that approximately 70% of the homeless in Victoria have a smart-phone, I decided to make an app that puts everything a homeless or otherwise struggling person may need in one easy to navigate spot. This would ideally help those in need help themselves and ideally lead to a better quality of life, even if the benefit is slight.
