Nami – An app for all the green thumbs and plant moms who want to watch their garden grow.
Nami is an app that connects to a small water reader to help you take care of your plants and keep them happy. It tracks the soil moisture, creates a customized watering schedule based on the specific plant and its current moisture, and provides tips on how to care for your plants. Nami aims to assist users with a busy lifestyle who have plants, and users who just want to take the proper measures of caring for a plant.
Approach: For this project, I conducted interviews, organized data by affinity mapping, created personas and moodboards, as well as created an app user flow, wireframes, and a prototype. The name “Nami” was rooted from the word “tsunami” as a reference to the idea of water saturating a large area of land. I wanted the interface to be simple and straightforward, with sophisticated shades of green. Some key features included in the app are a soil moisture detector, a customized watering schedule, and care tips that cater to your specific plant—all necessary features that will help your plants grow.
User Personas:Based on my learnings from my research, I created two personas as my target users. My first persona is a new plant mom and my second persona is a meticulous plant owner; I chose to put them into two groups because they have very different needs and motivations.
App User Flows: While Nami’s purpose is specifically to make caring for plants easier, it was important to keep the user flow minimal and clean. Considering that the users have a habit of forgetting to water their plants, Nami’s key features are viewing your plant information and a watering schedule.
