In order to understand better the whole process that is taking place in order to design a cultural probe our tutors assigned to us a task.
The Brief that was given to us was saying that a design agency has commissioned us to design an innovative international student community app. In order to better understand the international student community in the UK and to gain deep insight into potential users of the app we have been engaged to design a simple cultural probe.
First i took some notes about what were the things that i was interested to learn from the international students and i then i decided what my concept is going to be for the two different cultural probes that i was going to design.
Then i created a few sketches of ideas that were coming to my mind at that specific moment.
And when i made it clear in my mind what i wanted to be included in the package that i was going to sent to the students, i created a few clear sketches.
The First Cultural probe that i have design was to find out How the weather in UK is affecting the students emotionally and how active they are depending on the weather.
