Project Introduction


In the Spring 2018 semester through Berkeley Innovation, I worked with Karen Chou, Pamela Hu,
Kenny Yeung, and Leanne Chan with 
Replate on their
recipient sign-up portal.

Project Purpose 

  • To design an efficient and seamless food donation sign-up tool for Replate’s recipients

  • To lower the digital divide through a straightforward and informative process

  • To establish a sense of trust towards Replate as a middleman

The Replate recipient portal was officially launched in July 2018. The client loved our work and the form was a part of their site for a while! They have since iterated on the design.

Meet the Replate Team!

At the end of our project, we had the opportunity to present our work to Replate's design team at its Oakland headquarters.


It was a humbling experience getting thoughtful and detailed feedback from the designers, engineers, and product managers. We are also honored to help lower the digital divides for those in need!
