The research process

I started this project by researching both recipe and social media apps. My goal was to see features both were using that produced pleasant experiences, caused frustration, and felt extraneous. 



I set out to create a recipe app that offered all the features that were important to accomplish the task of researching meals, finding inspiration, and also develop a routine for the weekly meal planning.

The Final Concept

The color palette was created by pulling colors from various cuisine stock photos. I removed the backgrounds from all images and applied the relevant colors to the background for each dish. I also chose the web safe sans-serif Poppins font for both title and text.

Each user has a unique profile and is greeted with a meal-of-the-day selection based on dietary preferences. They are also able to create weekly dietary plans, bookmark their favorite recipes, and create shopping lists for necessary items.
