About this Project:

This project talks about fast fashion, and is a maze like game where you collect pieces of cloth to repurpose clothes that had been originally discarded to be used once again, in an attempt to lessen the waste made from the amount of clothes that were thrown out each year to move onto something newer.

More About this Project

In the app lab, you can see what the basic gameplay loop looks like, which is going through each maze and collecting the cloth, while avoiding the obstacles. They move each time the player gets hit by either, making you have to watch where you're heading. The slides I provided shows the pictures of the sketch, and a look at one of the panels when made as a wireframe and mockup. The slides also provide an explanation for why this was made, and what not. Although the second person wasn't here to help at all with any of this. - A

The idea of collecting pieces of cloth to repurpose discarded clothes is a clever way to engage players in sustainable practices. Your project has a strong potential to raise awareness about the environmental impact of the fashion industry and encourage players to make more sustainable choices. I encourage you to further develop the visual design, gameplay mechanics, and storytelling elements to ensure that the message is effectively communicated to the audience.

Nice job, William and Amelia! I like the idea of educating people about the issue of waste and repurposing clothing through a fun game. It would be great to see the educational aspects integrated into the game as the user is collecting the clothes through the various mazes. I enjoyed the maze game and it's amazing how you were able to develop the game on Code.org. I look forward to you both further developing the game to include more obstacles to get around as users collect the clothing to repurpose. What would the repurposed clothing look like after being collected? I hope you do further this game. Awesome work!

The maze is a great idea as an interactive game to engage users in learning about the negative aspects of Fast Fashion. The graphics are really good and I had fun playing, but perhaps it would be good to have a separate level showing what garments can be made with the fabric collected. Keep up the good work!

Hi Amelia & William!

Nice work! I usually leave design feedback with a quick video, so I created one for you. It highlights some of my favorite parts of your project, and some next steps to keep improving.

Here’s a link to the video - https://www.loom.com/share/b9c85f7c7c164533acf1a548d7dc20df?sid=73ad728f-b188-4bd7-9b9a-f31cac3c38b5

I also included some key points from the transcript for you to check out below.


Hey Amelia and William, my name is Joe. I'm the founder of Bitesize UX, an app designer, and UX designer, and I'm here to provide feedback on your project, Recreate Your Fashion. First and foremost, I want to congratulate you both on creating a really cool project! I went through it and wrote down some key points to highlight the things you did really well and also some next steps for growth.

Your project addresses fast fashion, which is an amazing and relevant topic. The game you've created is a maze-like experience where players collect pieces of cloth to repurpose discarded clothes, aiming to reduce waste. I love the topic and the overall idea. It's a great opportunity to educate people about the waste involved in fast fashion and to create a cool, engaging experience that promotes sustainability.

One of the highlights I want to mention is your use of sketches in the Figma design. These looked great and were very well done. Sketching is a crucial part of UX and app design. It's something I do every day when working on apps and websites. Your sketches, which I believe are yours, Amelia, provide an excellent starting point for thinking about the app's look and feel before diving into design tools. Keep up the sketching; it's a valuable habit for developing and refining your ideas!

For areas of improvement, I think the biggest thing is to keep going with the project and make it more complete. The maze concept is really cool and has great potential for being both fun and educational. Consider expanding the maze idea to explore the process of fast fashion, from production to waste. This could add depth to the game and make it even more impactful. I would love to see you build out this concept further, perhaps by prototyping, designing, or sketching the gameplay and user journey in more detail.

Overall, you've done an excellent job. It's a great idea and a fantastic starting point. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing how you develop this project further. Great job, and see you next time!

Also - Check out this video I created to help beginners learn UX! It's 30 minutes long and you'll make a project to help people find volunteer opportunities. It includes a lot of practice with skills that will help you with your current project, as well as some of the most important skills for building apps. Enjoy!
