How do you communicate with loved ones immediately after a major disaster that disables traditional communication networks? This is a skunkworks project I conceptualized and pitched to my agency with a zombie-themed comic strip (among other things.) When my concept was selected for further development, I led a team of designers and researchers through brainstorming and refinement of the concept.
What I did
- Needs analysis
- Conceptual design
- Hypothetical personas to be validated
- Contributed to interview scripts to learn more about how people think about and experience disasters.
- Interaction design for kiosk and mobile app
- Investigation of technical constraints and opportunities.
