A new interaction for users that replaces vexatious habits, improving productivity and wellbeing.

Project Description

In the research phase of this project, I interviewed remote workers, to identify key aspects of their remote working routine that affect their productivity and mental/physical health. As documented in the presentation, the key area of opportunity highlighted was the need to build better remote working habits. Through six presentation pages, I have iterated and developed three concepts to meet this opportunity.

The goal of these concepts was to replace an old habit with a new one - specifically one with health benefits, from stress alleviation via plant life to reflexology and meditation. The effectiveness of each concept was validated with continual user feedback throughout development.
