Our biggest motivation is our friends, and we wanted to use those connections to inspire ourselves and others to be more cognizant of self-care.
What it does
It connects friends and builds a community that values wellness.
How we built it
We started off by brainstorming what wellness meant to us. The words that stuck out to us were community, friendship, and motivation. We came up with the idea to use your support system as motivation for wellness. From there we jotted down feature ideas, and came up with our name! Well Wave, has a lot of ocean/dolphin metaphors as they are social animals just like us. Additionally, the sea is incredibly calming and restorative. We then used Figma as our workplace to develop a demo of Well Wave.
Challenges we ran into
Implementing all of our ideas. When you have a project you're passionate about, the ideas keep on flowing out. Since we only had 24 hours, we had to leave a few ideas on the cutting room floor. But don't worry, we plan on developing and updating Well Wave until all our ideas are into fruition!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We each walked away with something to be proud of!
Dev Ariel: *"I'm proud of all the pages, and I'm especially proud of the 'add to your pod feature'!"*
Dev Carrie : *"I'm proud of the aesthetic and features of the app, and our creativity in implementing our ideas. "*
Dev Marleigh: *"I'm proud of how quickly we picked up Figma, and our all around teamwork!"*
What we learned
We learned how to use Figma, and realized that it is a super powerful software.
What's next for Well Wave
Building the actual app! We hope to create a mobile app to help our community grow and celebrate wellness.
