Currently, the most prevalent solutions to household food waste comes in the form of a bin. People don't choose to throw their food in the bin, it becomes necessary due to over buying, unpredictable schedules and just not cooking whats expiring first.

This is what we discovered when designing Prompt. During the initial research phase of the project we visited local food waste facilities, interviewed people and ran a short study where we monitered the eating patterns of 12 londoners.

We found that what people needed, was clarity around what they already had in their fridge, so they could make more informed buying decisions when away from the home. Prompt was our solution to this need.

The Prompt project was quite a seminal moment for myself as a designer, it gave me the opportunity to put into real life practice many human centred prototyping and research methods, and understand their value towards designing more useful and meaningful services.
