I’ve drafted a design for a mobile application to help protesters map barriers, gatherings, and other facets of a dynamic protest. This information can be gathered to provide the community with a real-time birds-eye view of the activity, helping them avoid arrest, stay safe, and create the most impact. As I mentioned earlier, this could provide data for Sukey or a similar navigator later designed by me.
The goals of the design:
- keep it simple & intuitive
- make aggregation meaningful with a flexible but limited set of icons
- add depth with rich media audio and text notes attached to a submission
The icons are not even half-baked. My goal at this stage was to develop a fluid experience for a user in a high stress environment.
