Pause is a mobile app for mindfulness. It’s designed to give users the tools they need to learn about different cultures and get sensitive questions (say, concerning race or socio-economics) answered. In such a crucial time in history, Pause enables users to educate themselves to become better neighbors and global citizens.

Pause - a Mobile App



Pause allows users to learn about race, socio-economics, gender, or sexuality. Users are able to ask questions to an AI database, or research a topic more by reading articles with the blog feature.

My Role

Art Director,  UX Designer, Graphic Designer

I created the concept, mapped out the user journey, and spent most of my time on the user interface. The bright throwback design conveys a sense of youth and play, encouraging users to be inquisitive and engage with the interface. While the subject matter is serious, the interface doesn’t need to be boring.
