Digital Media Production 2

Throughout this course I have learned how to research, analyse and visualize user needs for digital media productions from a business point of view. Furthermore, the course contained theory and methods in prototyping and testing.

Project
After brainstorming and researching I came up with the idea to the app “Shop Vegan”. In a report I documented how this app was unlike similar apps on the market as well as the customer need illustrated in a Value Proposition Canvas. Furthermore, I developed and designed a click-able prototype showing the main features related to the user’s needs and tested it. The test results and recommendations for changes was described in the report along with a discussion of the business idea.

Topics

  • User needs
  • Value Proposition Canvas
  • Prototyping
  • User centered design
  • User testing
  • Surveys and research
  • App development process
  • Business Model Canvas

Reflection
I do not think I have ever been so motivated for a course as I was for this. Here I could combine many of the theory and experiences I have gained over the years into one project. Along with that I could work on a topic I not only saw as a school project but something I could see myself working with in the future and where the value was clear both to me and people involved.

Final thesis at Multimedia Design and Communication

Logo for website

Purpose of the final thesis was to document my abilities to understand and analyse a practice-based problem related to my respective fields of study by means of relevant theory and methodology.

The result of the project was manifested in a re-design of a Gallery Heike Arndt’s website, a report documenting and arguing for the choices taken along with an oral examination.

Topics:

  • Project management
  • Usability tests of old website
  • Design of new website
  • Adjusting and coding new WordPress website
  • Quality assurance

Reflection:
Since I worked in the company this project was about, I gains some valuable skills from the real world. As a student I was used to working with only one project at the time which I could focus exclusively on. When working in the company, I learned how to balance several projects without decreasing my focus on any tasks. Furthermore the process taught me how to combine the sum of skills I had achieved throughout the studies into one project.
