Standout Features:

  • One-color gradients
  • Large font sizes
  • Mental health support mascot

A smartphone app called Root gives users a quick and simple method to keep track of their symptoms and prescriptions, get insights based on the information they give, health checkups, as well as more valuable information about their health while also supporting them through their highs and lows.

Designed by Paul F. Davis, this solution relies on large font sizes and bold outlines to help elevate the visibility and readability of significant data. It uses a relaxing, playful color palette with one-color gradients in charts following the symptoms weekly, with green indicating good scores and red hinting at recent pain points.

Finally, the app encompasses a mascot called Rootie that acts as a mental health support when needed but also serves its primary function of asking questions related to the symptoms to help find proper solutions. Rootie’s appearance makes the experience less of a nuisance as his playful looks elevate the users’ stress.
