What is this?

This platform is a result of the seminar "Getting a Design Job in 2030 - Why the design study has to change and which skills are already helpful today, in order to design responsibly" done in the summer semester 2017 at the Design department of the University of Applied Sciences of Potsdam.

Screenshot of the platform

The platform visualizes the chronological development of important subject areas for the design disciplines in the past and develops scenarios for the future of the work of designers.

The course was attended by 34 students from all three design Bachelor's degree programs as well as from the Master's degree program of the Design department.

Design & development

During a Design Thinking workshop organized by Jens Rauenbusch we used different brainstorming techniques to find an idea about how to document our research and scenarios. During this small meeting, the idea of visualizing events, resources and scenarios on a timeline was first developed. Because of the ever-changing character of the debates and visions about the different topics discussed in the course, we felt like using a time-based visualization was the right format.

We built a small design team to create the first mockups of the visualization, including:

We worked collaborativey using the UI-Design tool Figma, and met a few times to discuss our mockups. Once we agreed on a final design, I started implementing it with the help of Paul Klinski using Javascript technologies such as Redux & React.

All students provided contents for the platform and developed scenarios.

The project was supervised by the two lecturers Prof. Dr. Antje Michel & Prof. Dr. Frank Heidmann.

The communication between teams was mostly coordinated by Jens Rauenbusch, who did a great job leading and guiding the members.
