CF Hero is a nonprofit project that came to us with a noble request. They asked us to build an app that would help young patients diagnosed with cystic fibrosis with the demanding treatment they have to undergo every day.
Our role for this client
Our goal & challenges
Challenges were many. One of them was to design the app in a way it is interesting enough for our target audience in order to make them use it every day. The treatment of cystic fibrosis is extremely important for a longer and healthy life of the affected, especially in their adolescence. However, treatment takes a lot of time and must be done properly, the key to success is maintaining interest with the younger population which is not an easy task.
For this reason, we helped to create a beautiful UI with hand-drawn graphics in collaboration with Butterflies and Hurricanes agency. The app allows for customization of characters for points that the user collects by undergoing the assisted treatment process that the app offers. The points – oxygens – are used as currency to buy stories as well. This gamification helps to keep users interested in the app over time.
