From conversations with friends and single parents, and reading online articles and blogs, there was a consensus that single mothers have more support and resources than single fathers.
Based on this preliminary research, we saw this as an opportunity to design something for single fathers. We further narrowed our user group to single father with daughters based on assumptions that these dads face universal challenges when raising a little girl.
