Unleashing Women's Inner Strength
The right tools and the right mindset: that's what a woman needs in order to defend herself in an unpleasant situation. This kind of life-saving, indispensable knowledge needs to be shared widely with people across the globe.
Pretty Deadly Self Defense is a program that does just that. On top of regularly scheduled in-person classes, they also offer a handy app that teaches women the basics of self defense.
I was brought in to re-structure and re-design an existing barebones app. The biggest task before me was presenting information in a clear and accessible. I combined similar content, logically organized its presentation, and paid special attention to the friendliness of the design.

Splash screen, Log in screen, and the Learn tab
One of the many videos that live in the Learn tab; the Get inspired tab; the Blog category is a live medium.com feed
The Learn tab is the most important section of the app. It contains a vast variety of educational videos. I organized the videos by general topic: mindset and technique, with each sub-section splitting into multiple categories of its own. I made sure the navigation felt intuitive by employing additional navigation sub-sections and creating visuals explaining each video category.

Category visuals created for the app. L to R: Targets, Push past your comfort zone, Boundaries, Three rules of self defense, What if I freeze?, Make some noise, Welcome, How do I know this will work?,  Fighting back, What if I hurt someone?
