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.

DALL-E 2: “Black and White photo of carbon emissions from a power station near a data centre in the style of Anton Corbijn photographer” — Ultan Ó Broin

The video following 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.

The journey to a sustainable app prototype

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.

A walkthrough of the prototype app illustrates the key parts of the user experience.

Ultan Ó Broin (a Dubliner) is into user experience design and sustainability.
