Ezave User Interface Windows
During the COVID pandemic, Britain faced several lockdowns and various tiers of social restrictions which led to increased unemployment and reduction of salaries in furloughing. Unsurprisingly, this led to a greater demand of Food Banks but did not result in any changes to the Food Banks’ accessibility. Xingzhou’s solution is to repurpose the surplus of soon-to-expire food supermarkets usually dispose of through Ezave; an app that makes ‘saving easy’. Supermarkets can register using the app, and sell their soon-to-expire food at discounted prices to consumers, who are then offered the chance to donate the money they saved to Food Banks, or alternatively, can opt to volunteer at a local Food Bank instead. Ezave’s concept was developed extensively, involving branding, user interface design and professional feedback from The Trussell Trust, one of the leading NGOs for British Food Banks.
This page displays some of the windows from the app, whose icons and assets were created using Adobe Illustrator, and prototyped using Sketch & Adobe XD.
