Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Director, Innovation at Verizon — Emoti-Con Judge
Amazing work! Beyond being a really important topic, your team did a great job with the the design process. You showed very clearly how your design evolved and got better with every iteration! I love the big easy button nav that ended up with! I love the statistics page where you could interesting perspective on vaping like money saved or breaths.

My one suggestion would be think about how your user might use this over time? Should they open it once a day? Once a week? Why? Should they open it to log every time they are tempted to vape and don't and that gets them a token? I'm excited to see where you take this app.

👏 Instructional Design Manager at Mouse — Emoti-Con Judge
Thank you for sharing your project! Vaping is a real problem today and I love that your app takes a crack at addressing this issue. Your pitch was strong and really painted a clear picture of how your app works and its functionalities. One challenge with apps like yours is engaging its target audience, but I think the positive framing of showing users what they GAIN from not vaping as opposed to so many other initiatives that focus on the negatives of vaping is a such a great approach. I'm interested in how you will further engage your users!

👏 Associate Professor of Media Design at Parsons School of Design — Emoti-Con Judge
I really appreciate how you took an issue that is relevant to youth and worked to create an app that would address it not only with statistics, but with a human element. The series of iterations you showed in your presentation were fantastic, telling a story of development for this idea that really highlighted your design process. This is something that is so important and provides great insight into your creative journey. The framing of what is gained from not vaping was a good choice. Excellent work!
