Microsoft Design Expo:
Designing for a Healthier Future


Visual Identity

Every year, Microsoft invites global design schools to compete in their design challenge. Our challenge was to address the prompt, “Designing for a Healthier Future.”

Our team created Viva, a mental healthcare ecosystem that provides anonymous and remote therapy services for undocumented persons.

Scope of Healthcare

Research began with a look at healthcare as a whole, using mind maps and readings to frame the problem as a whole.

User Walkthrough

We felt that mental healthcare was incredibly overlooked as we continued our research. We also found that undocumented immigrants were a demographic that often had trouble finding health providers they could trust with their identities. These two problem areas, mixed with the start of exploring new telehealth experiences at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic led us to our goal: to design an accessible and anonymous teletherapy service.
