Building a New Inventory System for Small Businesses in Canada
Integrating innovative inventory software with the latest food-packing technology to better store and manage perishable food items.
CLIENT: SMALL BUSINESSES
TIME FRAME: TWO WEEKS
An alarming 58% of Canadian-produced food is wasted, creating an annual loss of $49 billion and 56 million tonnes of greenhouse gases. Small businesses also lack the knowledge and finances to afford big-name inventory software.
Create an app and packaging solution to give small business owners the tools to reduce their food-waste footprint, while also providing them with advanced intentory management for markdown planning and donation possibilities.
How Might We
track sustainably packaged produce in order to reduce food waste?
To preface, this project was the very first design challenge I have done. Rough around the edges, I'm still incredibly proud of what my team and I had accomplished, even before learning anything about grids, typography, colour theory, and all other UX/UI fundamentals; we were quite literally tossed in the deep end, and learned how to swim. I'd like to acknowledge my team, Niti, Kimber, and Cyndi, for being so open to my ideas and coming together to create something that was truly incredible.
