This project is meant to serve as an introduction to looking at design through the lens of a single topic. During doing this project, I identified, explored and refined a single topic of my choice and built both your formal and conceptual skills as a designer to help bring this idea to light.
My topic is about solving the problems of single parents. They need some people to help them and support them. Sometimes it is very difficult to balance their work or personal lives. I created a community that could gather them together and let them help each other when they have problems. For the community, I designed an app, an event, and an environment. I drew all of the people’s portraits. The main colors are very bright. The whole design and illustrations convey a friendly feeling.

Deliverables: Mobile App Event Environment
The mobile app is for single parents. They can use it to connect with others, share their photos, get information on caring children, donate to the community and find other single parents to help them easily. I want to give single parents a family feeling, gather them together and let them get closer. In One Home community, I hope they can trust each other, give each other help and support which can make them feel warm. From the app, single parents can get closer and know each other well.
