Clean Waters

About this Project:

Our app helps people find clean water anywhere. We thought about different environmental issues as a class and decided on a theme. Then we interviewed students and asked them questions about our theme. We found out that people wanted to know more about water sustainability. Using our app, people can learn where to find clean water and read articles with information about water sustainability. They can donate to causes that help to clean the water.

Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Designer / Lead Design Teacher at CoinTracker — Emoti-Con Judge
I really like the simplicity of this app concept, and I think finding clean water for drinking, recreating, etc. is extremely important for human existence so this app addresses one of the most fundamental human needs. I love that the name communicates exactly what this app does! One area I see to refine or improve this app is in making sure the user journey is aligned with the purpose of the app. I see two ideas coming through in the design: 1. find clean water and 2. spread awareness about water clean up. I think the app flow could better address finding clean water first, and then use storytelling techniques to inspire the user to spread the work and donate to this cause.

The design of the app is wonderful and very clean. I love the use of images and the focus on news related to water, which is a fundamental human right. As someone from India, I understand the importance of clean water. Providing up-to-date information through the app, such as notifications about water pollution in specific localities due to events like rain, would be very helpful. This feature could be enhanced by allowing users to find relevant information based on their location.

I see there is a location feature, but it's not clear if I need to check each location individually. Simplifying this process would improve usability. I appreciate that you followed a thoughtful design process, starting with identifying the problem, creating wireframe prototypes, and using napkin sketches. The concept is impressive and addresses a critical issue. Thank you for focusing on this important topic.
