I interviewed various planners and academics asking a series of questions in order to gather information about transportation in the region.
I also conducted two series of interviews with many different residents. This would highlight the way forward for my project.
Through collaborative reframing exercises with other designers, I was able to focus on bicycle parking.
This was then directed at bicycle parking for urban event spaces and my launching point for ideation.
How might we provide appropriate bicycle parking to event spaces like street fairs, farmers markets, and parades?
What will give bike riders the confidence to use bikes when attending these events?
Direct Stakeholder Interactions
The three stakeholders with the highest amount of interaction with the Parkable System.
Bike Rider Friendly
Since bike riders are the end users of the system, it is important that their experience is done well and considers ease of use and the security of the bike.
To be portable, the system must be easy to take down, and compact in a vehicle. Defining how the product and system may fit together and the ease in which it is taken apart.
Event Planning Friendly
In order to event coordinators to choose to use the system, it is important that the systems in place to order and install the system are easy to use for planners.
Through ideation, I was able to build a picture of how the system would work. With iteration, I was able to polish the fine details.
I am set to graduate this June and am excited to return to work as a designer. I am passionate about solutions around environmental crises and public health crises and would love to design for those issues. Additionally, I have international industrial design work experience which has boosted my love for travel along with my empathy as a design researcher.
