Final Project - Dec 2016
UX/UI + Branding
"Tugui" means blood in Guarani Tupi and is related to body fluids and energy. The word was chosen to title the project because of the relationship that can be made with diabetes, which is a disease directly related to the bloodstream, both in the matter of the body's deficiency in the production of insulin and in the treatment of a good diet.
To understand the impacts of caring for a diabetic child and who else that could be take good use of the product, I interviewed doctors and diabetic people since childhood.
The result was a Stakeholders Map,
whose main actors were:
• Families with diabetic children
• People with food restrictions
• Teachers, coaches and nutritionists
Information Architecture (simplified version)
• Meal Plan
• Progress status
• Diets and recipes
• Cards with nutrition information
• Glycemic graphics
• Goals and rewards
The prototype was validated on the World Diabetes Day event, at Rio de Janeiro - Brazil.
A few people were invited to evaluate important flows and complete basic tests. After their feedback
I could reduce some steps and understand better how to show informations about every meal.
