Deliverable 1 – Research Phase

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.

Brief 5 – Total Experience Design

Our brief was to respond to the IXD 2016 Student Design challenge. We had two areas of focus

1. Empowered citizens — how would you leverage artificial intelligence to improve living standards and empower citizens? Who would benefit most from this solution? And why?

2. Neighborhood networks — what if physical communities functioned as effective networks, where citizens could use their local knowledge and relationships to improve safety, engagement and exchange?
