Mental health issues

The industry has also experienced a boom, with the market projected to reach$17 billion (USD) by 2030.
The green spring onion
A spring onion reminds us of zest, empowerment, and freshness; qualities we’d like to have embodied in someone who talks with us about mental health.
Oni is friendly, but not overly friendly, zesty, but not toxic positive, and gregarious, but can be assertive.
Oni is here to make life a little bit easier for the users, encouraging them to be honest each day, and work towards a better mental health.
Visual & typography
The colors chosen for Oni represent the spring onion, with secondary colors that complement its green. We focus on creating a safe yet fresh and positive environment.
