I used digital illustrations and UX layouts to spread of awareness of plastics recycling and its impact in our environment. I chose digital illustrations and layout design for this investigation because UX design is a tool that is effective at encouraging more people to be engaged in and learn more about recycling by interacting and navigating through a fun, simple app. I researched the severity of plastics recycling process in the United States, searched for ways to improve the situation, creating wireframes, relevant illustrations, high fidelity prototypes, and interactive animations to show the overall interactive flow of the app. My findings were trying to come up with a simple and fun interaction that proposes a new visualization of recycling to alert and tell others about plastics recycling. My final product is a UI/UX app design called PLAREE, which combines plastic + free, plastic + story, and plastic + recycling.
