The Challenge

Create a unique mental health app that caters to the needs of our persona.


During the early stages of the project, each team member found a competitor (direct/indirect) and conducted a competitive analysis to access the user experience, design, features and technicalities. We utilized our findings to solidify the ideas we want to implement into our app and find solutions as to how we would stand out from the competitors.


Our goal of this web app is to provide a high learnability app which is simple, interactive, error free, and memorable. We hope this app truly help people and they will use it on a regular basis. We tried to improve the web app and aim to make it a better UIUX and more engaging and better usability.

Sit back and relax! Teok will guide you in controlling your breathing. Rinse and repeat until your soul is healed. 🙂

Meet Teok!

Teok was implemented into the app to give users a sense of comfort and the feeling of wanting to “teok” about their feelings. The design of Teok was to keep it gender neutral and bubbly. Teok’s name is inspired by the Korean translation for rice cake to put an emphasis on our softness of our feelings and Teok.
