KAYU, a meditation UX / UI Design App Project
I was assigned to work on a wellness app project during my studies at Ironhack Paris. After a thorough UX analysis, I came up with this cute and simple design concept.
KAYU is a meditation app that is conceived as cute zen buddy that will be part of the user's daily life. The character, Kayu, is like a digital coach: it gives a more human dimension between the program and the user. The app's main feature is a daily personalized session that will be adapted to the user's preferences and habits. KAYU will learn about the user's habits inside the app and offer adapted exercises everyday.
The name KAYU comes from the french word "caillou" which means "little stone."
After on quick onboarding, the user can sign in and indicate its preferences.
KAYU's homepage is simple. The daily program button is clearly shown at the first use. The menu displays 5 main sections.
- Home, Kayu's homepage
- The garden, where the user can buy goodies for the app with the rewards earned after completing meditation exercises.
- The daily session button
- The Zen library that gives free access to all the meditation content
- The Profile section, where the user can set up his profile, his preferences and access his stats.
The daily program starts with setting up the Zen mode (according to the session's time). This feature enables the app to turn off the notifications during the meditation time.
A quiz is a fun and effective way to learn facts that will improve the user's daily life.
Rewards will allow the user to get goodies in the Garden section to decorate Kayu and the home screen. It will even be possible to download KAYU wallpapers for the smartphone.
After telling his mood to Kayu, he will adopt the user's mood and empathize with him.
The user will be able to go to decorate to customize Kayu with the goodies bought from the Garden. The Zen mode can also be set up freely from dedicated button on the home page.
