Projects & Coursework

Interaction Design | Happy Housemates

Role: Researcher & Designer

Team: Self

Project: For SI 582: Interaction Design, we were asked to consider a community, research that community and competitor products, and come up with an interactive solution. The community I chose was unrelated adult housemates. I created the prototype to meet two needs of this group:

  1. Encourage individuals to understand their own preferences and how their preferences differ from others in the household

  2. Help housemates become aware of and address differences before they come an issue
