Now, some UX design prototyping for a problem we all share: using persuasion techniques to motivate people to consider the environmental impact of their mobile photos. The video explains the user-centred design approach adopted to nudge environmentally-minded people to personalise their app experience when managing their photos.
This was an MSc in User Experience (UX) design project for IADT.
I hope you find this story interesting and that the research and findings are of some use for your own design and sustainability work. This is a fascinating area. It is the start of a new UX design journey for me.
Here’s a video walkthrough of the FOTONS photo management app that I researched and designed for the MSc in user experience design at IADT.
Photos are stored in the cloud, and that means carbon emissions. The app uses UX design nudging (or persuasion) principles to increase positive motivation toward the environment when taking mobile photos (54,000 taken every second!). The nudging techniques used are called out during the walkthrough.
