"The Spot"

Place-Specific
“The Spot” is the design that came from our “place-specific” theme. Place-specific design is a new genre in interaction design, which takes into consideration a “place” instead of starting with a “user.” The geography, location-based resources, and norms of a place are all taken into account for a design.

“The Spot” involves using Bluetooth technology to create download points in specific neighborhoods in Malmö. The neighborhoods are predominantly immigrant populations, with youth centers available to teenagers.

Watch the video to get a full description of the design, along with the design process we followed.

This project was designed and developed along with my classmates: Sebi Tauciuc, Chad Petersen, and Katrina Anderson.
