Ringology presents itself as a DIY mobile application that acts as a gateway to an underground website which allows women struggling with arranged marriages the chance to take action. Creating a complex system through simple interactive design, serves as one solution for this sensitive subject matter. The organization presented can be utilized therapeutically or for emergency assistance.
This is a very conceptually driven project with a simple user interface design with the intention of easy navigation for women in need. Ringology is a DIY ring making application which camouflages its access to an underground website. Sending an image of a simple handcrafted ring is the key for a confirmation code that acts as the URL for the website.
The underground website [ ] is encrypted and its interface is designed solely using icons. This is to prevent any trouble with family members finding out and causing further issues for these women. Any existing text is somehow encrypted. Chat text is hidden with quirky song lyrics after a two minute time span and important information requires a hidden hover point.
