The final delivery for this short project was to present the research carried out and to formulate a design solution. In this presentation below I walk through my ideas on instant messaging and an idea of ‘Supportive Search’ – helping the user reach their goal.
At the initial stages of the project I conducted a deep dive of research in to the following texts and online articles.
“The best interface is no interface” by Golden Krishna
“100 Things every designer needs to know about people” bySusan Weinschenk
“Storytelling for user experience” Whitney Quesenberg
Also watched the following talk by Open Table on service Design.
Service Design – Exposing the Hidden Choreography of Restaurant Hospitality
In this project we are to take a deep dive into a specific emergent aspect of Interaction design which fascinates you. We were to take inspiration from texts or to pursue our own area of existing interest.
As part of the project we designed and delivered a Service Blueprint and Experience map of the proposed journey. They are available in the attached PDF.
It’s good to take time to reflect on past work and past experiences. No time is better than a nice break between Semester 1 and Semester 2.
What I have learnt
This is our final concept submission to the IXD 2016 student design challenge. My role in the video was the production of all graphical assets – screen UI, Layouts, sourcing imagery and establishing the Settle identity. I created and edited the video using Adobe After Effects and integrated the VO recorded by Venu.
I was actively blogging our process on Tumblr, documenting the different outcomes and stages of the project. You can view more here on our Tumblr blog.
After our initial research phase we presented our concept to our peers. You can view the presentation below
After deciding to focus on the area of ‘Renting in Ireland’, we completed a deep dive phase of research including user interviews, body storming and user mapping. I conducted in-depth research with multiple interviews, conducted body storming research by applying and viewing property in Dublin (it was terrifying!) and I was able to publish a survey on national online publication to gain some quantitive feedback and insights.
