How might we design a mask to improve physical well-being for healthcare professionals?

Project Description

This project centred on exploring the defined scope of healthcare professionals within the overarching project brief: redesign masks to improve physical well-being.

A detailed user journey map was made based on a persona created from several interviews with healthcare professionals. I also used a storyboard to further visualise the struggles healthcare workers face because of masks in their daily lives. After ideation and concept development, I used low-fidelity prototypes and qualitative/quantitative user feedback to evaluate the concepts. This resulted in three final concepts.
