Colorblindness App
2015
Mobile App
Montreal, QC.
Description
Not very often in our professional lives we get to build something that improves people's lives. When I decided to become a designer, I had a dream of creating something useful that would solve real problem or human need.

Well, in 2015 I released this App intended to help people stricken with a common eye disorder: color-blindness. I was inspired by Miguel Neiva's work, a Portuguese designer who created a visual code for colours in 2010.





How does it work?
Like a color picker, point the camera on the object or color area you want to know more about for an instant analysis of its color and shade. You can also click on the target to lock the selection on the screen and its color analysis.

If you want to know more about how Neiva’s color code works, just swipe left and have fun trying out our color puzzle. To discover the world around you as would a 100% colour-blind person do, swipe right and switch from colourful vision to colorless mode

The app was developed and released for free. It’s our contribution on trying to make the world a better place for people who cannot see colors.
