Hello, my name is Porfirio Moreno. Product design is my jam! I am committed to solving problems and understanding what customers look for in a product. My versatile skills allow me to adapt to any situation. My goal is to provide the best product experience, it can be through the process of iterating on existing products and services or developing something new.
12Stories enables students to share their story. Through sharing their stories other students can gain an understanding of what others are going through and see that they are not alone. In turn, colleges can also gain an understanding of the challenges students face.
How can we mobilize college students to advocate change in their colleges to be more inclusive, relevant, and accessible.
Community college student don't feel connected to their college. If students don't feel connected they are not likely to want to advocate for change. Community college students felt even less connected to their colleges, for many of them they felt like they were just passing by.
Our solution was to create a space where community college students can develop a sense of belonging while also helping college understand their students needs. We proposed 12Stories, with 12Stories students have a place to express themselves, a process to share data with colleges, and a way for students to know how their stories are affecting change. Students can share their stories through the app, and a physical story wall will be located at the colleges where students can have their stories displayed as well as read other submissions.
This was a two week design sprint for the Adobe Jam, I worked in a team with two amazing designers (Gaby Castro and Sara Pope). The Challenge was to design a mobile app that empowers a specific audience facing food insecurity. For the submission the team and I designed two different experiences of the app, the Volunteer side and the side of the older adults receiving ordering the groceries.
The Challenge was to design a mobile app that empowers a specific audience facing food insecurity. The audience we designed for was older adults and the problem they faced was in acquiring groceries and feelings of isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic.
During the ideation process we came to the conclusion that we wanted to have Older Adults as our target audience. We discovered the need to bring to light older adults who faced food insecurity and loneliness during the pandemic. For the submission the team and I designed two different experiences of the app, the Volunteer side and the side of the older adults receiving ordering the groceries.
The team and I developed an app that incentivizes volunteers to help their neighbors in need by contributing monetarily towards their groceries and delivering them safely while improving parts of the supply chain. With Feed Ma & Pop we created a community that brings volunteers and older adults together. Volunteers get involved by accepting a challenge from a friend, or simply downloading the app. They then pick a Ma or Pop, deliver their groceries and begin earning rewards. Older adults can contribute to their grocery list with as much as they can. If something is left over a volunteer will pick up the rest. We’re giving a sense of safety back to older adults, while empowering our volunteers. We know that a way to a person's heart is through food that's why we're focusing on getting nutritional food to older adults. We’re Feed Ma & Pop
Contender is a wearable device that helps the user maintain a proper boxing stance using gyroscope accelerometer sensors embedding in the clothing. Contender is available in two options, a Pro and Standard model.
I remember the many instances when I would drop in on different gyms while I was looking for the best fit for me. I would always encounter the same problem: There was only one instructor for multiple students. This made it difficult for the instructor to keep up with everyone. As a result, some students had little to no instruction. The problem I am focusing on is inconsistent technique when working out, to be more specific, when boxing.
Having identified two different target market groups, there will be two versions a Pro model and a Starter model, condensed at a lower price. The intention that led to the development of two different wearable models, is due to commitment. Many people don't want to spend money on something they are unsure about.
Smart clothing that uses gyroscope accelerometer sensors to help users maintain a proper boxing stance. For the Pro model, the sensors will be embedded in the wrist, shoulders, chest, hips, and ankles. For the Starter model, the sensors will only be located in the wrist, chest, and shoulders. The sensors will measure the distance from the starting point to the endpoint of a punch and movement then the app will average it out to calculate the position you should always be landing when you throw a punch and reset.
