How may we help long-distance couples connect and create emotional intimacy by spending quality time online in one cohesive space?
Moon & Back was made with myself & another amazing student in 24 hours as a response to a Protothon challenge. We worked collaboratively together in each phase. Our personal deliverables includes: User interviews & Surveys, user journey, prototyping main features and a wholesome flirty presentation to suit Valentines Day . Our goal was to have grounded user research supporting the project, have 3 professional designers in the field provide critique, high fidelity prototype. We personally reached out to graduated students that work at places like Facebook to make this project the best it can be.
Through interviews and our survey (23 respondents) identified these three main pain points. The below is how the methods they use that are effective
Provide long distance couples privacy & their own personal space to define their own intimacy
Motivate long-distance couples to connect and resolve their miscommunication
Design fun & Interactive game/activities to bring more excitement & freshness
Personalized service of features need to be included for couples to express
their loves or affections, as some couples do have trouble expression affection.
Simon & Thomas are in 1 year long-distance relationship. Thomas is mad at Simon because he can't meet up as promised on Valentine's day.
This project brought a lot of insight on how development of a product can be done from start to prototyping. We received a lot of critiques on how may we present this application and how our solution was fairing. Our application worked to solve a list of needs that would need to be developed in detail. Overall, it showed the benefits of working with an individual with the same energy and passion matched with my own.
