Project Goal

Design a mobile application to teach time first-time budgeters about creating and sticking to a budget.

Target Audience

The primary audience is young adults and young professionals who have never used a budget before.

Research & Key Challenges

I conducted remote and in-person interviews for a wide range of ages.

The key challenges were to limit the features to just those features which will educate first-time budgeters about budget concepts.

Initial Concepts

Paper sketches were used to capture initial design ideas, using crazy 8 methodology. The best ideas from initial design concepts were translated into digital wireframes.


Usability testing data was recorded in a spreadsheet for each of the participants. The responses were transformed into affinity groups to find themes.


Future feature releases will be considered from the perspective of learning about budget concepts which align with Budget Buddy’s mission.
