Problem

The pandemic has worsened stress and anxiety levels among university students in Brazil. PUCPR has a department to support students with their mental health, SEAP, but they only reach about 20% of their students. Students struggle on their own and don't know that they can get support.

Solution

A companion app that facilitates making appointments with SEAP's psychologists, offers daily check-ins to help students reflect on their mental health and academic struggles, and offers personalized insights and workshops based on the students' unique needs.

Pet Match, adopt with care

App for pet adoption on a mockup.

Adopt the perfect pet for your lifestyle.

Developed for the App Design class in PUCPR

Team project

  • Responsible for
  • Usability testing
  • Co-responsible for UX/UI

Problem

Brazil has astoundingly high numbers of abandoned dogs and cats. Many owners abandon their pets around December, seen as an inconvenience when they need to travel. Responsible pet adoption is essential to guarantee that pets are treated with care and respect, and that begins by a good match between the owners' lifestyle and the pet characteristics.

Solution

PetMatch allows choosing preferences for the pet's personality and traits, so the owner and the pet are more likely to be a good fit into each other's routines. Look up pets that are available for adoption, schedule visits with their caretakers, and get informed about how to take care of your pet.
