The goal of CookGift is to avoid food waste and create a community based on the love of food. The application is a location for members of different cultures to share their collective passion for food and cooking, and share home-made recipes, cooking tips, and tricks. Reducing food waste is environmentally important as it keeps food out of landfills, saves the average household money, and reduces disposal costs.
The CookGift app has a uniquely intuitive design and allows users to scan the barcode of food items. Inventory control gives the users the ability to enter food quantities, expiration dates and add photos of food. Reminder push notifications alerts users of upcoming expiry dates, and recipe suggestions are available based on their inventory.
During the design process Essential Designs worked closely with the client to create wireframes, user cases, personas and design elements such as the logo, icons, buttons and colour palette. The result exceeded the client expectations.
A platform where users and other app officials can manage the data, access and content creation.
