App     Cards

Our Mission

The decline of mental health is largely due to the loss of communication between brain cells. Scribble focuses on art making and journaling to stimulate parts of the brain and form new connections between cells. Each activity is designed to help the brain discover shiny new insights that can smooth the path of your mental health journey. Through this process, people have the ability to improve their self esteem, experience more positive thinking, de-stress, and enhance their overall mental health.

Our Story

College was an extremely stressful time for Stephanie as she was constantly searching for healthy outlets to release the stress of classes, organizations and work. She began to journal in the mornings to kickstart her day and doodle in the evenings as a way to unwind. As her last year of college at the Ohio State University approached, she began to think of topics for her visual communication design senior thesis and decided to look into the world of art therapy. Stephanie filtered through psychology websites and case studies, sent out surveys to learn how people participate in art making and journaling, conducted focus groups and interviewed art therapists. After weeks of research, Scribble was born. 

Initially designed as an app for her thesis, people would approach her and ask when she would make Scribble a reality. Stephanie realized the demand and interest for Scribble and decided to put Scribble’s activities into the world. Without the knowledge of developing an app, she created Scribble in the form of physical activity cards. Upon success on Etsy and Uncommon Goods, she wanted to see Scribble back in its original form, an app. Luckily, her fiancé, Greg, had just completed a 15 week developer bootcamp and was now equipped with the skills to build Scribble for the App Store. After months and months of outlining new activities, creating illustrations, drafting emails and writing code, Stephanie and Greg are eager to put Scribble in the hands of others.

How it works

Filter by the emotion you want to focus on, then tap the activity that sounds the most beneficial for your current state of mind.
Grab your favorite drawing tools and let Scribble guide you through art making steps to activate your mind and body.
With a pencil in hand, Scribble’s journaling steps will help with processing what you created and think about your emotions at a deeper level.

Meet Stephanie, an alumni from The Ohio State University's visual communication design program, a full time UX/UI designer and the creator of Scribble. On a more personal note, she has a geeky love for architecture, baking and dogs. Stephanie became a designer to use her creative brain to solve problems that exist in communities and the world. Through her design program, summer internships and full time creative jobs, her knowledge of design and devotion for creativity has broadened. She now looks for the opportunities that will not only expand on her own experience, but will make an impact. She believes Scribble is one of those opportunities. Stephanie sees Scribble impacting communities by helping people become more in tune with their own emotions and therefor having more empathy for others.
