Project Description

Brief

Cafe Teria is a design that I created out of the frustration of having to use my kids’ app for school lunch. The problems that I was facing is that I budget and my kids do not. While dreaming up this app I thought I might add some other features that might help parents and students enjoy their experience a bit more. One of the first areas I thought about was the budgeting, teenagers live their lives in the moment and if they are’t reminded they need to stay within a budget, they simply will not think about it. I added their spending budget below every total so they remember ohhh I need to stay within this budget. My hope is that this teaches them to budget before they are out on their own having to learn budgeting as a crash course. I also wanted to make it feel like a restaurant app where they can order their food for the entire day and give them options to request overages.

Branding

The following is the style guide I created for Cafe Teria.

Results

The final product feels bright and candy-like, which will appeal to kids who use the app, it will draw them in to want to use it. The app also appeals to parents that want to teach their students to budget. I chose green for the parent half of the app because the parents’ main interaction is money. The blue for the student was chosen because blue conveys stability and felt a little more grown-up, if anything I’ve learned as a parent of teenagers they want to be treated and seen more grown-up, combining the color with the teaching them to budget feels pretty on point for a teenager.

In the end, the interactions of the app make for a far superior app experience for both student and parent. For the student, they can pre-order their food for the day and have the freedom of requesting overages and the parent has the ability to set budgets on the account.
