Nice Socks is a mobile app that helps new college roommates break the ice and feel more comfortable with each other. Through the app, roommates can find events around campus, coupons to local stores, ideas for "Do It Yourself" projects, and conversation starters and games.
Research showed that most students who had a poor relationship with their freshman year roommate experienced a lack of communication and bonding from the very beginning. As part of a group of three students, we created the app for my Design Systems class aimed to improve this broken system at Northeastern.
We used InVision and Adobe Illustrator to design the app and make it interactive.
