study project:
neighbourhood based network

ismartcare

In our group of three, we started this project thinking about the meaning of "neighbourhood". Nowadays it's quite often used to describe the same taste of music or other personal attributes. We've been looking for a solution that combines both, the classic interpretation of the surrounding area and the modern term.

We came up with a platform that encourages young parents to form local groups for socialising as well as to establish a self organized day care system for their children.

the target group‘s dilemma

the time span between 25 and 35 years of age is called "a time trap". It's on the one hand a career-decisive time span and the time you are supposed to become parents.

occupational mobility and the so called "life long learning" becomes more important. Young parents do not have a chance to take a time-out from their job and often one job is not sufficient to make a living.

Due to job related moves, many young people have not yet build up a social network.

Day nurseries mostly don't have enough capacity, are often quite costly and inflexible in their time schedule.

Let‘s give them what they need

We conducted a survey, asked how young parents think about their situation and presented them our idea. The feedback was overwhelming.

That's what they want:

  • socialising with other parents,
    especially for those in rural areas
  • continuous care system
  • emergency or backup solution
  • system should be unobtrusive

Our solution

web based platform, split up in two parts:

a. Website:

Sign up for an account, enter some personal details and your zip code. Define the range of your mobility, using the google maps api. Build groups upon the users profiles and the proximity to other users. Organize meetings and build thereby a daycare system.

b. mobile solution

we outsourced only that part from the application, which wouldn't work on stationary pc or work much better on a mobile device like the iphone - the emergency or backup solution. It's based on the contacts users made during their local meetings. If a user suddenly needs someone who takes care of their children for a short while, he can quickly reach his contacts using the platform.

Web application

ePaper interface

Interface for an epaper-platform, which can easily be adapted to any magazine of the publishers portfolio.

The contents are exported from Adobe Indesign and then integrated by a third party backend-system. The platform provides a complete archive of the last five years, downloadable pdfs of the articles and a clipping-function, based on intelligent searches. Bookmarks and the generated clippings can be saved in the users profile and be shared with other readers.

The concept and design I came up with has been changed, because I left the company before the site went live.

webbased informationsystem

Mediadata-Tool for a publishing house

Designing an interface for the output of media information out of an existing database. Tool was intended to replace the printed edition of the yearly published sales information.

Emphasis was put on the presentation and structure of the data, which was a little complicated due to the existing ms-dos based database system. Stylesheets, which were optimized both for printing and pdf export, were implemented to bridge the gap to the former printed edition of the mediakits.

With visualized advertising formats, which are a crucial point in sales talks and the ability to adjust any kind of information in a short time, we eliminated the drawbacks of the old fashioned print editions.

Website

„Zahn & Mensch“

Website for a small dental clinic with the intention to inform customers and patients free of fear, by leaving out the cliches that are associated with that topic.

I developed the CD and the name, which links to their holistic therapeutic concept.
