In class last Thursday we listened to an audio segment from a movie and were then charged with designing a watch for the central character in 2-3 minutes. Then we divided into groups of four, preferably with people you haven’t worked with before and then through a collaborative process we developed a persona. Our young, career driven, unmarried, NYC, running enthusiast woman needed a watch to help her with time management. We were then given several minutes to design that watch.
I was going for a sleek stylish design with a lighted panel that used light to create an analog display of time rather than a numeric display. Though sleek and stylish this watch would be highly technically evolved to sync with her phone, computer, car, appliances, home security, calendars etc.
