Description:

People who actively budget are more comfortable in their financial lives. This product takes a budgeting app and brings the physical world to it, a ‘clock’ that acts like a pie graph, changing as your money moves from your bank accounts into your life. It is a tool that can be used to save for a trip or watch over the house expenses.

Brief:

Working with NCR, a bank teller machine company, we ask what money and transactions will look like in 2025? Research and design a product that could help people move into the future of how money works.

Research used:

Disruptive probes such as paying for things with contact less cards sewn inside a teddy bear, to an automatic email that is sent to your friends when you buys something you said you wouldn’t. The research in this project was all about how changing the context or story of our transactions can give us glimpses into what we really need from our money.

Tools utilized:

This project’s research was about how changing our transactions’ context or story can give us glimpses into what we need from our money.  CAD, woodworking tools, disruptive research, interviewing, and client communication/ consulting.

Challenges:

The research methods used in this project were new but gave many more interesting results from the research done in the past. Using a different type of researching skill was fun and challenging to do correctly, as this forces the use of breaking down the context of research, rather than just understanding it.
