Final booth layout
After all the nights of searching for a volunteer opportunity that both fit my schedule and my interests, I found out about the Bone Marrow Donation Programme (BMDP). I signed up and months later I was called to donate my bone marrow. The process took 2-3 days and about 14 days to recover from.
This was the moment I realised I was in quite a lot of pain and I literally went to the extent of donating something that was a part of my body..... all because I could not find a volunteer opportunity that suited me as a busy undergraduate.
That was the moment I realised the idea of donating something always appeal more to me than committing my time and presence for others. It made me want to look into the reasons why and if there were any ways to solve them.
12 HOURS AFTER MY
BONE MARROW DONATION
I opted for colours that were reminiscent of Singapore's local shop houses in hopes that it would steer away from the cliche colours that Singapore is known for. This was a difficult topic as volunteering has the connotation of something only government related and I was trying to make it seem less top-down and more peer to peer.
The logo also had to be related to keywords of "giving" and "caring" but not be too obviously so.
As such, I opted for a more sleeker look and did not outline my logo.

Age range: 19 to 25
Everything is too small to read
'Back' icon should not be on the right.
Red header is jarring.
Tap or Swipe? Prototype functions are not clear.
There is no brand narrative link between a virtual neighbourhood and volunteering
Task listing interface is too messy
Too many words to read
About page looked too government related
Too many functions, what is the main point?
Sign up security functions are necessary even if they are troublesome. Facebook sign in alone is not enough.
Make it interactive so you can add and follow your friends
