An app to provide resources, encouragement, and support for women & queer adults with ADHD.
I was personally diagnosed with ADHD in my late 20's, and once I got that diagnosis so many things from my past made sense. I was also left with a million questions and not sure where to turn for information and community.Two years ago, I learned about a program and app called Noom, which utilizes Psychology and Behavioral Science to guide users in learning what is behind the decisions that affect their health. It has proven great results for many users, including myself. With these two things in mind, I set out to create an app to help adults with ADHD navigate their condition in a supportive, confidential, and personalized environment.
inflow is an app, created by a trained Psychologist. The app facilitates a Daily Focus and provides guided sessions to learn about different aspects of ADHD. Users are prompted to set up a profile and engage with a community of others with ADHD.
Psychologists and Coaches teach patients about different aspects of ADHD and help with coping strategies. They can be difficult to access, and are typically seen through a rigid schedule. They can also be expensive and difficult to cover with insurance.
Noom is more of an inspiration than a competitor. It is an impressive, overall health and weight-loss app based in Psychology and Behavioral Science. The way it functions with approachable, easy-to-understand daily lessons and goals makes it wildly successful for many people.
Because myADHD is targeted to women and queer people, it was important to create multiple personas to show what a diverse target audience looks like and understand their needs. The experience of ADHD is different for every person so it was also important to understand multiple perspectives in that regard.
Alex has recently been diagnosed with ADHD and wants to see if his anger is a symptom. If so, he'd like to learn coping mechanisms.
After the class was over, I pushed this design even further in order to enter it into Academy of Art University's Spring Show. This updated design more closely reflected the inspiration from the Noom app with a more interactive lesson and simpler flow. The app was accepted as a finalist for the show.
I had a little fun and created my first character fully in Figma, lovingly called Dot, to be the face of the app. Dot should make people feel at ease and bring about some smiles and giggles. I created the character and animations, and then built Dot in 3d.
Jasmine is using the app for the first time and going through the introductory walkthrough.
Shai needs to set up their rest routine to ensure they get enough rest throughout the day and at night. The rest portion of the app is in a dark/night mode to encourage calm.
