Ideation


How can we care for our parents when we’re geographically seperated?

From, research, it shows that 80% of people have regretted not being able to care for their beloved ones, when they are geographically seperated.

A subtle platform that acts as your health assistant, subtly recording your health information and informing your beloved ones when you're not feeling well.

how it works


Android Application + Moto360 Smartwatch Systems Flow

research


User Interviews - Personas - User Journey - Systems Thinking




To understand the problem of sharing health information within your geographically separated family, I had to first dissect the current available system/methodology before hypothesizing any solution. To do so, I mapped out current systems elements, it’s interconnections and how it created a current paradigm of sharing health information. Then, with the help of mental models, I was able to sketch out the user journey of a possible solution that solves the most important factor of the problem.




making it work


User Flows - Wireframes




With a possible solution validated through user research, sitemaps and wireframes are created to visualize the application’s information architecture and it’s interaction design.




rapid prototyping


Prototype - Test - Repeat




Leveraging the knowledge of front end coding, I hacked my way from prototyping on a third party software to in browser prototyping. This method allowed me to be agile in my process of information architecture/interaction design and greatly increased the time for more user testing.

art direction


Style Guide




A reference to the pop art culture was chosen for the art direction because of it’s influence in style and trend with my senior demographics. The colors derived from pop art was also distinctive enough to differentiate and highlight different health categories within my app.

Icon Set




To be more original with the art direction, a special set of icons was created for the interface. All icons are designed with the Material Design's icon gridding guideline.

brand identity


Logo Gridding




I needed my app’s brand to be trustworthy, distinctive and helpful in a way that it informs your family’s health information even though you’re geographically separated. Therefore the color was perfect to emit such feeling of trustworthiness and helpfulness while having the folded heart represent connectedness and warmth from being together.

user interface


Android Mobile




Kinform’s interface is designed along with the Android’s Material Design guideline. Layers are designed to increase user affordance while the bold interface colors and animations shine through the app to enhance the interaction design.







User's health information

user interface


Android Wear




The moto360’s extension application utilizes the same visual principles of the mobile app. The challenge of the Moto360’s visual design is it’s smaller interface screen. Which meant that the information presented had to be much more simpler and to the point, that it’s meaningful to the users at the right time. The watch subtly notifies you on family member’s health information if triggered by high/low heart rate, long duration of inactivity and/or missed/late medication. In dire situations, Kinform on Moto360 also acts as an emergency responder and notifies your emergency contacts if notification is not dismissed manually within 60 seconds.
