Creating the Project

We have been working on the idea of what we would like to include in our project.

As the millions of ideas begin to flow regarding the aspects that we want this application to have, we noticed that the multiple ideas began to create more of a complication than resolution. With a variety of aspects, or add-ins, that we kept coming up with, we noticed that we needed to start simple and small and add if we had time.

With this realization, we began to focus on the necessities of this application that we needed to focus on.

We need to start focusing on the needs of “our people”.

Creating The Idea

We may have had this as an assignment, but we shortly realized that creating an idea was not necessarily the easy part, like we all may have assumed.

No matter what we would think of, or like to alter, you would always find that someone else had already published a similar concept.

At least for me, this made this process become discouraging. But as the thoughts began to roll, we were able to gather a wide range of different ideas that all would be wonderful projects.

As the deadline kept approaching, we chose to work on an idea that David had created. His idea incorporated the concept of a household item categorization application.

Creating The Team

As we all begin this journey of human center design, we have become acquainted with each other and each other’s backgrounds.

This journey will be interesting based on the wide range of backgrounds that we all have.

Each of us will provide a necessary need that we will have while working on this group project.

We have the main coders, the businessmen, the marketers, the writers, and the researchers.

We have created a contract that details expectations, strengths, weakness, tasks, and commitments (see attached file)

The team members are as follows:

  • Samantha Lang
  • John Orin
  • Jonathon Tamm
  • Brandon Young
  • David Faunce
