The problem exists for both the parents and the kids. At one end the parents face problems keeping track of kid's expenses and an easy and convenient mode of transaction, whereas on the other end kids lack a platform where they could learn to manage their daily expenses and learn the value of money management.
Through existing platforms, there's only a way to send money to kids for the parents, but no track of expenses and setting the limit for the expenditures.
Working with a team of three members, took charge of the user research, conducting interviews, and creating user flows & wireframes.
Contributed in UI through branding and various interface screens of the application.
A platform where the parent has control over the kids' account, periodic transfers, and setting limits over expenses can help learn kids the important lesson of money management. For the kids, a simple yet interactive platform where they can manage their expenses categorically helps them know their expenses. Separate savings account where they can save money according to their wish.

Rhino is one of the more ancient, curious, and perplexing slang terms for money in the English language. It originated around the 1600s in Britain. The proposed application is a personalized mobile wallet that handles all your daily necessary operations with ease at your fingertips.
Thus, the name because of the application's relevance to money, came with the name "Rhino". And for the logo, as it is a personalized digital wallet, thought of combining the two and came up with the application's logo.
After finalizing the color theory and typography, we worked on the iconography to be used for the application for various menus and options. Using the color palette, we transformed the wireframes into final versions of the screens. Refined various screen's interface taking into consideration visual appeal and easy to use interface.
