ROC United was an iOS application built by Clay Ewing, of University of Miami, for the Restaurant Opportunities Center. ROC United was a winner of the 2016 Festival of Media Arts Best in Competition under the F5-Mixed category. I was involved in collaborating with the information architecture of the product and user testing.
“Every year Restaurant Opportunities Centers (ROC) United catalogs wages, benefits, and promotion practices of 150 of the most popular restaurants in America and publishers the Diners’ Guide to Ethical Eating. Using this data, I designed and developed an interactive mobile version of the guide. The interactive version of the guide allows users to search by labor practice preferences and location. Users of the app can join in a social media campaign and tweet to restaurants based on their labor practices. Additionally, users can submit reports of restaurants not on the list to be verified and added by ROC United. As part of this, I created a web interface and database for ROC United to continue adding and updating restaurants. Kelsey Kjeldsen, my graduate assistant, also helped with the user experience, creating and then user testing wireframes of the app with other students.” -Clay Ewing
