Future Cities Project

Future Cities Catapult works to improve urban environments through the development of new products and services that operate within cities. The company's Cheif Design Officer, Dan Hill, approached my university course with a brief entitled, 'Connected Street Furniture for Civic Interactions'.


My team's outcome was a concept for a platform which would allow small, independent shop owners to survive through healthy competition within their local area; giving consumers the ability to optimise their expenses and gain a more personal shopping experience.





The above image demonstrates the interface that each shop owner would use to upload their 'daily deals'. This information would then be accessible from a shopper's phone and additionally be displayed on digital screens in a central space within the shopping area.
