My Role

Lead Product/UX Designer.


3 Developers, 1 Designer


Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School


Figma, Illustrator, After Effects



During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, I recognized a growing disconnect amongst students as traditional schooling was replaced by remote learning. Because of the sudden change in environment, I found that a lot of students struggle to keep up with changing guidelines and staying up to date on school wide initiatives. Throughout the development, I spearheaded a team of designers and developers to revamp the user experience and interface.

User Insight

Pain Points - Students

I find school overwhelming with too many updates and changes, making it hard to stay connected within the school."

"The app's interface isn't user-friendly, and I struggle to navigate through different sections to find what I'm looking for."

"I want to receive updates only on specific types of events but there's no way to customize my preferences."


Problem Statment

How might we develop a school app that effectively communicates event updates and COVID-19 status while ensuring user-friendliness, accurate information, and privacy, tailored to the diverse needs of the student body?

Final Design and Reflection


This project taught me a lot on qualitative research methods and solid design principles thats focused on the end user. I encountered numerous challenges in devising a design that struck the perfect balance between technical feasibility, user-friendliness, and visual appeal. I believe we achieved our goal of connecting students and making events and opportunities more salient towards students. This experience has significantly sharpened my skills and deepened my understanding of creating designs that resonate with users while aligning with development constraints.
