In order to increase awareness and access around mindfulness and meditation, we followed a design thinking methodology to create an app that enables working professionals to quickly and easily establish a beneficial routine.

The app challenges the notion that mindfulness and meditation are difficult, expensive, and time-consuming by making it easy for working professionals to practice mindfulness and meditation anywhere and at any time, regardless of their experience level.

From Wireframes to BO

We started with simple wireframes and tested them with users. Based on the feedback we received, we created "BO", a personal meditation adviser that answers common questions around meditation such as "What should I do?" and "How should I do it?" based on user preferences.

Using our key strength of designing user-friendly tools, we came up with an experience which is both unique and friendly.

I wanted to create a companion for the users of the app so they do not feel alone during the sessions and programs. I was quite happy once BO was born from our creative process. We  really enjoyed creating an encouraging experience for users of the app guided by BO
