Hackathon Design Sprint
Project Overview
In about 48 hours time our team developed a case study on people with disabilities attending events that need accompaniment. Starting on Friday evening we developed the complete design process alongside a coded and fully working Prototype. On Sunday night our team was announced the 1st prize winner along five participating teams.
My Contributions
As one of initially five and eventually three designers I helped the team to set up a framework for a very fast design thinking process. Throughout the weekend I focussed on User Stories, Proto-Personas, User Flows, Sitemaps, Wireframes and did the final presentation.

The problem statement

People with disabilities often need an escort to attend cultural events. „Inklusion muss laut sein“ already has got a database of over 3500 people who would be happy to accompany someone to a social event. However, they still have to search the entire list for each request to find a suitable „match“ to make an accompaniment possible. Until now, there is no well working tool yet that allows people with disabilities to independently search for a companion who shares similar interests.

We need a tool that allows people to post an event and get directly proposed volunteers that meet their own defined criteria.

Conclusion

Results and impact
In 48 hours time we managed to set up the entire design process and
Main challenge and lessons learnt
Since I was on a tight deadline within the curriculum I had to plan and schedule very well. Especially in the case of the usability testing where I used video recording. Preparation, documentation, execution, and eventually assessing the data are key-skills that ask for close attention.
Next steps
First of all, I am looking forward to removing all possible frictions in the prototype. Later I will reach out to marketing experts and developers to receive their opinion on market placement and feasibility.
