Angelica Ramos has created a self-initiated brief that involves an app and website called Green Space. It has different features that help locate green spaces within Sheffield City Centre, such as gardens, parks, and cafes with indoor plants to highlight the relaxing and positive environments, ideal for doing work, meeting up with friends, and more. There is also a page showing information about different communities where the user has the opportunity to volunteer within Sheffield.
The app has a task reminder that helps users to be active and gain enough points to win a coffee as a reward. A feature to check their progress is also included on the app. This encourages a wide range of audiences to be active and makes sure everyone has the opportunity to find a place they are comfortable going to. Having a connection with nature is important because it has a positive impact on mental health and healthy living.
Ramos’ prototype app highlights locations through an illustrated map outline, to make it easier to look at, having two main keys that easily show green spaces and cafes within the city centre. Being able to navigate these areas gives a better view of the city and allows visitors and students or residents new to the area to get familiar with the city and its surroundings.
