Project one was the beginning of our discovery phase for this social innovation project, based around homelessness in Savannah. Sharing research findings started off the thought process of defining the vision for the project. Our client, Marvin Heery, has a strong desire to get…

A worthy project for sure. I would think about adding in local law enforcement because they encounter the homeless population during the hyper vigilant night period when the social organizations can not safely engage with them. The hidden nature of the homeless population along with the fact that a fair amount of the homeless population need services despite willfully avoiding support organizations and shelters. It’s a tough problem and as a veteran I hope that a viable design is implemented.

This a quick set of pointers on storyboards.

Procreate for iPad now records your work. Here is a page from my sketchbook entry today. Here is some of my sketching process. I am working on my ability to draw people and storyboard for UX prototyping.

Services for 3D printed clothes is on the horizon

It is still early in the shift to 3D printed clothing, but I think designing services for the next evolution of brick and mortar retail is going to be exciting.

This was our Arduino project. We were given an Arduino, compass component,a speaker and led lights.

Social for all Service Designers on the roof at Churchill’s at 8pm this Thursday. This will be the last time we get together until next fall so come out and have a drink or some food with your fellow Service Designers. We are such a small community this could be your last chance to network with the those of us who are graduating.No matter how crazy the quarter is for you everyone has to eat so take a break and relax. If you under age or just don’t drink, the food is pretty good and it is an affordable place. The social will start at 8pm and probably be done by 10. If you have any questions inbox me.

A quick prototype after a meeting is a way to show the client you are listening and also a way to jump start an iterative and rough prototyping process.
