Habit Reshaping Design

As part of my graduate thesis project, I created a set of two apps, one for kids and one for parents, that aim to increase the physical activity habits of kids living in urban areas. The research for this project revolved around the science of habits (based on the book The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg (read it, it's amazing)), behavioral design, and gamification principles. The result of this research and process was a self-published book, which I wrote, designed, and illustrated, as well as interactive prototypes for the two apps.

This book was a compilation of all of my research and results. The font on the cover and opening chapters was custom designed to represent the ideas of reshaping and movement. You can buy or read this book here.
