Concept for Rejseplanen

(7 weeks, Q2, 3. year of IT, 2010)

This page is about a project which was developed in the course Experience Design 2010 and the project was part of a competition at Rejseplanen (Rejseplanen is the biggest danish service for finding travels with public transport) which we unfortunately didn’t win.

The concept video

The concept video briefly shows the concept by illustrating the problem and the solution, based on an example with the Roskilde festival.

Rejseplanen on Facebook

This project has been based on the theori and techniques from Experience Desing in relation to the domain of Rejseplanen. The result of the project was a concept proposal to how Rejseplanen can take advantage of combining it’s services with Facebook and thereby facilitating social travels.

The concept is that groups and events on Facebook can administrate and coordinate travels together through a Facebook application which is accessed through the group-/eventpage.

The report we wrote about the concept for the competition can be read here.

And furthermore all interfaces that we designed for this can be seen in this pdf.

The poster

Besides two reports and a video we also made a poster which illustrates the concept.

Experience Design

Through the concept development we used several aspects and techniques from the Experience Design course. For the exam project we wrote a theoretical report which contains the theori and some elements which were not relevant for the competition – this report can be read here.

Subjects

We especially focused on the subjects Emotions and Co-experience. Within Emotions we looked at the purpose with the concept which was to support a social feeling on the journey. We used Co-experience to create elements in the concept which supported shared experiences (these elements can only be read about in the theoretical report, since the elements was not a part of the Rejseplanen competition).

Techniques

Through the course we were introduced to many different techniques, and the ones that we have used in particular are annotation (writing/drawing on top of pictures) and conceptual blending (mixing different cognitive models to understand new concepts). We have also written about the use of these in our theoretical report.
