Mobile App

Made at Cal Poly's Design & Dev Hackathon 2015

Created in 24 hours, Optimist is a virtual treasure hunt for geo-cached optimism around you. 

When you feel sad, Optimist finds happy messages around you, and when you walk to that location, the message unlocks and you feel better. You can also write optimistic messages catered toward those who feel a specific mood.

I had the idea for this app and formed a team to help me create it at the 2015 Cal Poly Hackathon. With a team of two other designers and three developers, our app was built with a full-functioning server and complete design concepts in the course of 24 hours. 

Awarded Hackathon Grand Prize, Apple Swift Prize, and Kennedy Library Prize.
