MORPH PROJECT SPONSORED BY HYUNDAI
Intelligent Mobility Design Centre,2020
Client: Hyundai Motors
Role: Service Design- brief development, blueprints, personas, user scenario and journey, ideation, jobs to be done discovery
The MORPH project tries to answer questions that have been lingering in the future forecasting of mobility design and monetisation strategies for manufacturers and industry pioneers such as will the sharing economy happen at scale in the automotive industry and how much will it influence vehicle design and service innovation? The project will look at ‘sharing economy’ as a phenomenon and collect insights from people about how do they think and see the future changes in their life, and then create design directions to respond the trend.
I omit research in detail to comply with the NDA.
There are 4 projects which have each theme based on sharing economy and we worked together on the initial process, however, I was in charge of two of them to lead final deliverables as part of it in the end.
