  • Concept

    Daily Do is an application that presents the user with a daily self-improvement themed challenge. Progress is tracked through a point and rank system, along with an overview of completed challenges.

  • Description

    Daily Do challenges you to complete a small ‘Do’ each day. Get something done each day that contributes to your wellbeing, and sometimes that of others as well. Spread kindness, think positive. The Do’s can be easily added to your daily routine, and it is up to you how elaborate or simple you want it to be. Log every Do that you do with a picture and/or description to build up an entire gallery, so you can look back and remember all the Do’s that you did. Even better, share your Do’s with your friends and family to inspire them too.
    So challenge yourself, add a little serendipity to your life, get out of your comfort zone, and be kind to yourself and others! Do the Daily Do!


Wireframing and interaction

I created a simple wireframe model for the different application screens in Illustrator. During this activity, I also started thinking about the interaction between the user and the screens.


First graphic mockup

I created a graphic mock-up of the application, first the static screens and then a partly working prototype on the phone (as can be seen below), to get a feel for the flow in the app. I was going for bright colours and an almost retro look, to make the application playful, warm and approachable. I am not quite satisfied with these graphics yet, so I will be exploring other options in more detail as I continue developing this app.


Practical application

The general concept of the Daily Do app can be tailored to support specific personal goals. For people who seek therapy or counseling, it could become an aid for delivering and tracking homework that is assigned as part of their treatment. Patients with an anxiety disorder or a deficit in social skills for example are often given small daily assignments during cognitive behavioral therapy, for which the Daily Do concept would be perfect.
