The Smart Food Hackathon hosted by the Communication Design program at Texas State University, grouped students into teams of 2 designers, 2 programmers, and 2 business analysts. Each team had 2 days to think of, design, and create a working app that addressed food insecurity in the local area.
Stephanie’s team designed EatUp, an app focused on food insecurity among college students. The app aimed to help students choose healthy ingredients for simple recipes that were more affordable than on-campus meal plans.
As one of the designers on the team, Stephanie designed the logo and icons. She also pitched in with the marketing analysis when her team lost one of their business majors.
