UX & Visual Design
Seattle, WA (South Lake Union)
Working on this piece at General Assembly allowed me to understand the process of a User Experience designer and how their workflow benefits the user and their overall experience. Hide Description –
There needed to be some sort of automated incentive without: having to remember to look at their stickynote/notepad, or set a specified date through Siri to relay their thoughts back to them through their mobile device, because it's still a bit difficult.
The idea is to create a mobile application where users can jot in their memories using text or voice, and to choose between 1 week, 1 month, or 1 year for that message to relay back to the user. This allows for time to pass by with new perspectives of the original thought to form, and allow users to clear their minds and unguiltfully forget. The challenge was how to create an experience so that users can do it as seamless as possible.
I created an experience where users, after submitting their memories into a capsul, can send it off into the future. Once the internal countdown for a capsul was ready to be reviewed, the user will get a notification to review their capsul. This would in turn always be interesting to revisit, and users have a choice to either delete the message once they've received it. You can only view the submission based on that day, and leap days would just be rounded to the day before.
This project was made possible through General Assembly.
