The Good Stuff is my own app concept, created during the General Assembly UX Design course I completed in 2021.
I wanted to investigate the link between phone usage and general happiness; and if people are prioritising their wellness.
After conducting interviews (with assumptions) and affinity mapping the responses, I realised that people weren’t as unhappy with their phones as I thought.
During the pandemic, I became hyper-aware of how news is presented to us –
and how none of it is ever good.
After conducting user testing of my mid-fidelity prototype, it became clear that the design needed to be simplified further.
The app was designed to decrease stress — not overwhelm or confuse the user with complicated UI.
I wanted to ensure users were guided through the app with an onboarding flow, and had minimal clicks to get to the content.
Using the feedback I received from user testing, I refined the UI even further.
The next steps will involve guerilla testing to find out: is this app actually making people happier?
If it is, are people sharing their happiness with others?
The development continues…
