Thesis 2022

Purpose Statement

Feb. 3rd, 2022

This week we are asked to write about a personal goal of our thesis projects. Here are some guiding questions:

+ What do you want to achieve with your project? 
+ How do you want it to serve you in the future?
+ (what do you want to be when you grow up?)

 I hope this project can not only serve as a strong piece in my portfolio that can help me get a job, but also is something that’s meaningful and impactful. Even though I don’t think I would necessarily love to launch this project in the future, I want this project to be as complete as possible, and practice creating launch-able products. As a graphic designer, designing things that are visually compelling is very important for me since making visual design always excites me and pushes me to reach the new potential. Besides, i enjoy learning new things while I’m designing different projects. One of the reasons that I chose health around eating as my thesis topic is that I truly curious and want to learn more about it. Last but not least, I want to make something fun, unique, and inspiring. 

Also, we are asked to write about our research focus for the remainder of the semester, documentation, and process outputs. Here are some guiding questions:

+ Identify critical research focus & deliverables
+ What important research steps and systems are relevant?
+ How best could you frame your research?
+ What should be your prototype and iteration focus?

Currently, I shifted my focus from how exactly eating healthy is to how to build good eating habits that can last for a long term. It includes language use during habit building process, reward and punishment system, reminder system, and how phone can be helpful or distracting. While I was making the user journey map, I noticed that it would be really helpful to interview a couple of people who have used or have been using an app around diet, fitness or habit building. 

Next Step

+ Research on habit building
+ Refine competitor analysis (add habit builder competitors)
+ Refine user journey map
