YOUniverse Anti-Bullying App (Winning Entry)
As a brief set by Leicestershire's County Council to design an anti-bullying app for their children's department, our winning design was chosen and the app will be created by app developers and seen on both Android and Apple's marketplace in the near future.
School children aged between 8-14 years-old.
YOUniverse, is designed to offer children a safe social networking environment in which they can voice their problems and leave advice for others. In terms of visual language, YOUniverse is centred around a space theme in which planets orbiting the central profile page offer third party information on four distinct type of bullying; Cyber, Emotional, Physical and Verbal.
Through the use of collective research by our team of three, we came up with a social community application, which while displaying the users with anti-bullying information also allowed for users themselves to post problems and give advice dependant on their own personal experiences with overcoming and dealing with bullying related issues. The app gives users the chance to really experience and become apart of their own 'YOUniverse' through the customisable features and avatar creations whilst still dealing with their problems in a more engaging way with the user experience our app has to offer.
