Starting off the project, I had a paper prototype with the ideation of my prototype
My classmates did a user testing with my interactive design website. I then introduced my idea to them which was helpful in garnering useful feedback in terms of functionality of the idea- Why I was creating this project- my goals. As well as useful feedback like implementing a ‘hearts’ feature to allow individuals to like certain photos. They made me question how it would be different from other photo based social media and this further pushed me to set a vision and clear lens in which my website will be based. I wanted to push the idea of cultivating stories and narratives of individuals through photo through capturing photographs of individuals and creating a space for bringing people together.
