Cookie Jar: Mindful Social Media
Cookie Jar is a mindful social media experience that boosts your mental health.
Engaging in the wrong types of social media can hurt mental health, causing jealousy, anxiety, feelings of inadequacy, and even anger.
Cookie Jar is an app where users can boost their mental health and make a positive impact without quitting social media. Users can give each other "cookies", where they publicly praise and reward their friends for performing good deeds and demonstrating mindful values, like kindness and reliability. Your network can see your cookies and know you've been doing good things!
As a UX/UI designer, you'll need to design an intuitive flow that allows users to engage in a positive social media experience. You'll need to have an eye for social media interfaces, while making a delightful and engaging experience that keeps users coming back for more good deeds.
MAKE MINDFULNESS EXCITING
Cookie Jar rewards its users for being good through social interaction and rewards. Users should feel good about each cookie that they receive and give to their friends. The design will need a fun and highly engaging interface to keep people coming back to do more good deeds.
