10 weeks

Sept - Dec 2018

 

Brief

SCAD partnered with Google Maps to answer the question,
"What would Google Maps look like if it was designed from the ground-up specifically for mobile youth’s (for ages 18-24) behaviors, needs and aspirations?"

 

Outcome

After four weeks of research, one week of ideation, four weeks of prototyping, testing, and iteration, and one final week for the final presentation, our team had come up with a redesigned Google Maps that understood 18-24 year olds and reflected how they understood and interacted with their environment.

Six team members and I were given the opportunity to travel to Google's campuses in San Fransisco and Mountainview to share our final concept with the Google Map's team.
