As a designer, I have a passion for interactive design. Using my own style, and Adobe design suite, I responded to a national issue in order to create an interactive smart phone application.
Social, Health and Economic Impacts report, commissioned by Beat (a charity supporting those living with an eating disorder) in February 2013, estimates that more than 725,000 people in the UK are affected by an eating disorder
Although many eating disorders develop during adolescence, it is not at all unusual for people to develop eating disorders earlier or later in life. Reports showing cases from as young as 6 years old.
With the increasing number of young people developing eating disorders, I designed a smart phone application called ‘Frend’ (fuelling recovery enabled by nutrition and diet) to allow younger sufferers to balance both eating and activity in conjunction with GP, therapist, and parental support.
