This week we were all introduced to a new technique for developing and the conceptualization of ideas. It was also a good opportunity for all us first years to get to know the second years. Overall it was a lot of fun and got a better insight to the actual course structure. Me, Niamh and Shelley were in a group with Mary (2nd Year). The word we ended up developing in the final stage was Hero. The previous team had created a surplus of lethal Heroes. My personal favourite had to be Phone-catcher Man, a hero that prevented the devastating phone drop! He would be always on the look out, ready to leap into action. Anyway after we had several refined concepts we settled on an app that allowed real people in everyday feel like a ‘hero’. Our app design included a anonymous profile (to create a sense of mystery) and customizable avatar, a live news feed to share the goodness and even a GPS system that allowed users to team up together and commit groups acts of goodwill and kindness. This is the final concept design that we presented, it also demonstrates my rusty photoshop skills!
