Design for Shiken

Shiken is a revision platform designed to make preparing for exams and tests fun and easy for students, with minimal stress thanks to the mindfulness techniques integrated throughout.


Character design:

My role included designing Study Buddies and their Biome environments – these are characters students unlock as they use the platform, who serve as user avatars, app hosts, and mindfulness guides.

UI design:

  • Gamifying the mobile UI for Shiken with answer streaks and daily challenges
  • Flow for users creating and using their own journey maps
  • Iconography


  • Spot illustrations for web
  • Spot illustrations for app
  • Artwork for animation
