About the project


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.


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.


You'll be given a requirements packet and an example of successful design just like if you were working as a designer in a top tech company. From there, you'll hone your design skills by solving the product and user problems. When you have a final design, you can add to it to your portfolio.

What you’ll work on

You'll be tasked with designing the main flows for Cookie Jar's core features at high and medium fidelities. You will need to optimize your designs for either native Android or iOS.

Your designs should convey a brand identity that is fun, playful, and positive, and keeps users engaged in rewarding each other. This is an opportunity to work on a social media platform like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

This project will need beginner UX/UI skills. You will need to understand the very basics of UX and UI design, and be able to mimic common patterns.
