Food waste is a serious problem within Canada as well as globally. Aside from food, this dilemma also wastes billions of dollars annually. It is a topic that affects the economy, environment, and society as a whole. According to the website of Toronto, "Some food waste, such as bones, eggshells, tea bags, fruit cores and peels, is unavoidable. However, over 50 per cent of food wasted in Toronto single-family households is avoidable, including leftovers and untouched food that could have been eaten at one point."  

There could be many reasons as to why food is wasted. A few examples include:

  • tracks your productivity progress and provides insight

  • offers a wide variety of ambience settings to get you into a productive mood

  • keeps distractions to a minimum by blocking apps (i.e. social media)

  • limits interactions with the UMO app through simplistic system design



Through a unique lens filled with fantastical oddity, wonderment, and just a hint of darkness, I study and comment on socio-political issues in my design.
