Graduate Project – FoodBub

As part of my unit for my final year I have pitched to create an iOS app using Swift 3. The app aims to reduce the food waste that happens at home. This inspiration comes from my experience as a sous chef at a Thai restaurant where we are taught to cook efficiently with minimum waste. And as a student I have seen a lot of fellow students struggle to be efficient with their ingredients.

The key features of the app are:

  • Remind the user when their item is due to expire.
  • Show recommended recipes based on the ingredients that the users has.
  • Give advice on ways to store and use items as efficiently and wast-free as possible.

I will be responsible for all areas of this app and therefore responsible for time managing throughout the process of production.

My role will be:

  • Research and planning.
  • Wireframe and UI designs (Sketch, Photoshop and Illustrator).
  • API and Database (Firebase).
  • Version control (Github).
  • Development (Xcode).
  • Video trailer (After Effects).
  • Graduate Exhibition.

Potential Solution for Barclay’s Online Banking Website on Mobile

As a barclay’s account holder I’ve always been annoyed by the lack of mobile support when it comes to their main website. I guess it’s due to the high attention for their mobile apps. So I decided to try and do a mock up of a mobile view for their website.

Being ‘Createful’ for 5 weeks!

As part my placement experience I was given an opportunity at Createful to have a first taste of life at a creative agency. Over the course of 5 weeks I was an iOS developer intern where I was responsible for coming up with a solution for an AppleWatch and iPhone version of their WeddingPlanner app.

Feel free to check out my blog post on their website where I talk about the things I did and took from my time there:

Wedding Planner – iPhone & Watch App

Applied Design – Live Brief

Applied Design – Live Brief

In this module we were asked to form mini agency’s and pitch for 2 live briefs. After that we were assigned to one of them and asked to create a functional application for our client.

I had a really good experience working as a team where we collaborated our ideas to create a functioning app that really pleased our client.

It turned out really well as we were able to get a first and the feedback that quoted “a very high level of work that is extremely close to be a polished app that a client would be happy to release”.

Below is a link to the pitch and final outcome of our app:

D4DME – Filtering

As a recipe site it was important that we created a filter that would allow the users to narrow down their choices and find their recipe’s easier. We decided to base our filters on 4 different selections.

A lot of the work was done by Verity, however she was able to comment on each section to help explain her actions clearer to me and therefore I was able to understand it.

Overall the filtering process took time and a lot of trial and errors. It eventually became functional and we were able to see it in action.
