This was a user centred piece of design where I researched into stress in the emergency services. I discovered there was a dangerous amount of work-related stress in the emergency services and this was primarily caused by not unwinding after long shifts.
Introducing Operation Unwind. A campaign designed to reduce stress through exercise as a way of winding down after stressful shifts. Through research, I found exercise can reduce stress and encourage a healthier lifestyle. The most suitable way to relay this information was in the form of an app that people working in the emergency services could download. It contains exercises for all levels of fitness and dietary information to prompt a healthier diet with less fat and sugar.
This project developed my skills for designing for a specific user. I also gained a huge amount of knowledge in stress and ways of reducing it.
