Savage Kitchen connects its audience to the Hawai’ian ecosystem through wild, edible plants. By focusing on the harvesting and use of invasive species, the app supports native species and food security—a critical issue for the Hawai’ian islands.
I worked with Tessellate Design Studio, leading concept development, wireframe prototyping, and user research. The wireframe prototype embedded on this page demonstrates the logged in experience. A local map is central to the experience, its community-managed data helps users locate one of five invasive plant species for identification, harvesting, and for tips on preparing each for consumption.
The app is expected to launch in mid-2020. I'm also working on a website for this app's creator, wild foods activist Sunny Savage. The work involves streamlining her various online properties and projects into one cohesive website, launching early 2020.
