CARTER COTE'S DIGITAL PORTFOLIO
SIX FEET SUPPLIES
WEB APP THAT CONNECTS AT-RISK INDIVIDUALS IN NEED OF SUPPLIES W/ COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS.
COVID-19 has left the immunocompromised disproportionately devoid of access to basic necessities, as they are forced to isolate in their homes. In response, Six Feet Supplies was created to deliver resources and supplies for at-risk individuals, all at zero cost. Run by 10 high school students, including myself, we have recruited over 300 volunteers to deliver over $50,000 worth of groceries around Southern California.
We offer FREE delivery for groceries, items in limited supply (i.e dairy items, meat), or emergency supplies per the user's request. Using sanitization procedures approved by local nurses, our volunteers deliver the user's supplies in a timely and careful manner.
My web app has had over 15,000 visitors, thus leading to over 500 deliveries in 14 different cities. Our team's work resulted in national spotlight on CNN, LA Times, Newsweek, and more. Click here for an article about the site.

CHOOSE A CITY
Users are given the option to choose from 14 different cities throughout Southern California, all of which have their own Six Feet Supplies branch in their community.
PLACE AN ORDER
User can place an order via the form component that I designed, where they can specify their desired items, quantity, and brand. Users can also denote the priority of the order, as well as payment method of choice.
START A BRANCH
The website also aims to assist those who were interested in volunteering to deliver groceries during this difficult time. Users can begin discussions to start their own Six Feet Supplies branch by following the steps that I laid out on the page.
Users can gather more information on the organization's upbringing, as well as our entire student team behind the whole thing. Check out my friends Zoe and Eric, the co-founders, who were featured on CNN.
Creating the site wireframe in Figma, I iterated through several versions of the user journey for placing an order. Ultimately, I was able to develop an easy-to-follow and simple process.
