Switch Charrette

A Charrette is a yearly design competition promoted by the Institute without Boundaries and the George Brown College. In 2014 it looked at the future design of public service delivery.

My team, Switch, took on the challenge of designing a new energy based service for the the Redmond’s Hill & Wexford Street region in Dublin. Our solution made use of the recent installed smart metres to empower the energy user, giving them real time usage status, and opening up for a series of online campaigns that would promote local business and help people save energy and money.

Switch would be a online game integrated with social media platforms. Energy saving players would be able to exchange their saved Joules for discounts and special deals in local businesses and partners.

In this project I’ve participated on all states of the design process, specially during interface designicon design, and putting together the final video.
