PROJECT TYPE: UX/UI Design, App Concept
CLIENT: Personal project
The COEXIST App concept uses Augmented Reality (AR) to introduce urban residents to the wildlife living within their city. This idea came from research surrounding coexisting with urban wildlife as I discovered that our ideology around what is “natural” and “unnatural” within a city often impacts our actions towards these individuals. By making our wildlife “neighbours” more visible, I hope to remind urban residents that we do coexist with wildlife everyday and if we manage our own actions, we can live together peacefully.
This concept was developed through extensive research followed by various brainstorming exercises, peer feedback, and identifying design precedents. This concept was also showcased in our capstone Information Design exhibit Humanly, where visitors had a chance to try an AR demo and walk through the app UX mock-up.
