Mano App


Due to many social and political factors, many immigrant families have limited resources and access to the educational system in the United States. This can have a direct and dire impact on the lives of immigrant children. Mano is a mobile app that allows both students and parents to search for educational opportunities, apply to educational institutions, and track their educational progress over time.

Identity
/ Logo

Inspired by the wings of a bird, which represent hope and freedom, and by the word “manos” in Spanish, which means hands, the logo conveys a message of efficiency, caring, and growth.










Mobile app
/ System

The Mano app is not only a tool that improves the school application process, but it’s also a platform that allows both students and parents to collaborate cohesively throughout the process.

According to research, Android phones are more popular within Latin and African American communities. In an effort to reach those communities who would benefit most, the app will first launch in the Google Play store.
