Context

4th year Information Design University project
Information

Massey set out a task to make a transformative experience through information design that had a sustained, two-way and individualised user journey. To start, I thought that the current Maps app was under-utilised. It’s currently good for a direct approach for navigation, as required. But with the power of the location and method system, I wanted use this as an opportunity to utilise this. Focusing on different routes and their impacts, and if it is possible to actually offset these emissions emitted from the trips taken. It follows the journey as sustained through its competive social platform, being able to compare your offsets to your peers—try be the ‘better’ human-being. It’s individualised due to the feature that lets you add your own personal data/progress in offsetting your commute. Lastly, two-way through the use of push notifications, keeping communication with the user to utilise the platform and having them active in this change of behaviour.
