“The 811X Garden Care App”
About this Project:
We designed a Garden App would that would be very "user friendly" and help students/staff. Our App includes a section that gives information about care for the various vegetables/herbs/and flowers that are grown in the school garden. The user would click on the name or picture of a plant and it would list basic plant care information.
Also, our App includes a section about composting in the garden. In this section the user would click on a few different screens that would list names/photos of items that can and cannot be composted. We also have a section that the user clicks on that would provide basic Garden Care Guidelines to keep the garden clean, neat and safe for all students and staff.

The best piece of career advice I've ever received
Always seek to learn new things, but never forget the old.
My mission is to empower our society by designing experiences that are equitable and enjoyable. I thrive on cultural diversity as a catalyst for growth and enjoy collaborating with others. The "emerging" and "alternative" spheres of society excite me just as much as the analytical ones. My work spans between UX, growth, product, brand, and research. Ultimately, I would like to drive positive change for under-resourced communities through thoughtful and inclusive projects.
Former Mouse Corps (Design League) alumni, Kim Francisco is first-generation American, queer and currently works at Dutchie as an implementation guru for the East Coast.
