Masters Thesis

A typical cooking experience in a typical kitchen is a rich multi-sensory experience, yet the traditional cookbook is lifeless and static. Text-heavy and print-based, the typical cookbook's only sensory link to the kitchen is usually one photograph of the completed dish. There is a disconnect between the rich cooking process and the format of recipe books.

This creates a particular challenge for those with dyslexia and other reading difficulties.

For my Master Thesis, I researched dyslexic learning traits, interactive design standards, universal design, & existing cookery apps to create an iPad cook 'book' that de-emphasizes text and focuses on sensory learning.
