With the emergence of the sharing economy, students in MDes 601 Experience Lab 1 were challenged to explore this new business model through a human-centered service design approach. Having picked a complex problem that the students were passionate about, they translated their concept into a business start-up pitch in their MDes 604 Financial Accounting course. Radhika, Divya, and Stephanie honed in on the opioid crisis and developed a knowledge/resource sharing app named, NALO: Together We Support Recovery.
An assignment from MDES 601 Experience Design Lab.
This was a team project assignment focused on Autonomous Mobility. There is a paradigm shift happening in personal mobility. Many car companies are taking the lead set by Google to pursue the idea of “driverless cars” and what this technology can offer consumers and opportunities for businesses and services. This technology may also eventually dictate how cities are designed. Students were challenged to consider service and experience design solutions that embrace this growing need.
