Great Neighborhood App
How does the Great Neighborhood work?
People who have less to spend can access the app and ask different questions in certain categories, such as: Transportation, Stuff or Culture. People who would like to help can also sign up for the platform, indicating which category they can help in. When the requester posts a question, the helper gets a notification of this and they can start chatting with each other. If the requester feels comfortable with the conversation, that person can assign the helper and make an appointment. This is how we take care of each other in the neighborhood.
During the design process, we presented different styles of icons to the target audience. In this process, we came to the conclusion that icons in "human" form often lead to a stereotype. Therefore, we chose to create a set of icons that do communicate "human" but are neutrally expressed.
