About this Project:

It helps people with mental health issues.

Most people in this generation like cute aesthetic things and we thought it would be less boring and make people feel comfortable.

It works to help others want to talk about the issues they have or just relax and take a break from what is going on around them.

Great Design
Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Critical Response Team at Kyndryl — Emoti-Con Judge
Your perspective on life makes me want to live more thoughtfully. There is a product similar to your idea currently in the market name "Mindfulness" that you can do some research on and do a more detailed competitive analysis for steps to better your idea. Great job!

👏 UX Design Manager at Samsung Electronics — Emoti-Con Judge
Very nice work! Your pitch is a great way to showcase the user's mindfulness practice. I enjoy seeing you include cute illustration concepts and relaxing playlist selections in your app. Writing a journal, talking with someone, and relaxing will also be great self-care practices! So many emotional support animals help with a patient's mental health, comfort, physical health, and skill improvement. It contains all the good things you associate with a well-rounded project. Hope this pitch helps the user to start the day healthier and happier. Best wishes!

Jesanna, Shakarya, Vanessa, Jaila: I appreciated that you took this project as an opportunity to address an important issue, mental health. I particularly liked that you focused on maintaining well-being, and offer users multiple ways to improve their well-being, including, journaling, relaxing or talking to people; I think this both gives people important options but also bringing these together on an app helps people think to use the application in a wider variety of situations, which would improve it's efficacy. I also appreciated the use of the "cute cat" aesthetic to help set the tone for the application; I imagine it can help to distract people from stress and to treat well-being management as a fun and positive treat rather than as a sad and scary intervention. I would love to see this application built out more!

👏 Part-time Associate Teaching Professor at Parsons, the School of Design — Emoti-Con Judge
This is a great idea to support mental health for all. The aesthetics and the use of a character (a cute cat) really open up opportunities for people to engage deeply and be more open to trying the app. It would be great to see some testing of this prototype: how do people interact with it organically? which feature does the majority of users interact with? Could there be a call to action where consumers share what they produce in the app as a way to build a community, a support system?

I like how you put stuff i can use to write my feelings down and i like how cute it is and how amazing it is with stuff to talk about.
Ben 👏 a Teacher and/or Educator
I like how your app encourages people to communicate and share their feelings. We live in a world where talking about feelings are Taboo. Your help as nice calming features that helps people of all ages to share their thoughts.
