UI/UX design, iOS app dev


Product Vision

Spellbound was created as a new, independent, and engaging way for kids to learn spelling. Kids are dependent on a parent/teacher to help them learn how to spell, but there’s not always time for one-on-one practice. Spellbound utilizes VI to help children practice spelling and receive real-time feedback.

Process Overview

My team and I dedicated 10 weeks to ideating, designing, building, and testing Spellbound as part of CS 147: Introduction to Human-Computer Interaction Design with Professor James Landay. ​We conducted user research and interviews to iteratively improve the UI/UX of the app. 

+ Designed in Figma and Adobe XD

+ Built in Swift
