About this Project:

This app provides alternative routes for teens who walk by themselves to and from places (such as school, supermarkets, etc). When there is a particular crime or an emergency nearby, it provides a safe alternative route for the teenager to walk instead. They can also report something suspicious to keep other teens safe as well.

Great Design
Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Project Manager at Steinway & Sons — Emoti-Con Judge
This is a very good idea to help teens feel safe when walking alone. Really good graphics on the home page, but it would be helpful to show an example of a safe route or alert about an incident/to avoid certain areas. The option to report something suspicious is a good way to involve the user.

👏 Principal Experience Designer at Verizon — Emoti-Con Judge
The concept is a great idea, and is important to the intended users.
- The UI screens presented the concept in a clear, bright, and fun way
- I wanted to see more about how the concept was picked, researched, and how it would work
- The safety map would be of great help for more than just students, which would be a good future enhancement and potential market

Would love to see this built and tested with real students and members of the community.

👏 UX Project Manager at Brilliant Muse — Emoti-Con Judge
What a wonderful idea for an app! As a martial arts instructor, I understand how important safety is, especially for teens walking alone. The user engagement aspect through a report function is really smart – allowing users to contribute to a safer environment for everyone. To gain a deeper understanding of your vision, it would be helpful to see a problem statement outlining the specific challenges faced by teens and your design journey that led to this solution. This is a project with real-world potential to make a positive impact!
