To indentity a problem around us and suggest a graphic design solution.
47 % of seniors do not actively engage with the Internet. We live in a world where modern technology is becoming more and more important every day, but here’s the thing—not everyone seems to agree with this fact.
New things can be confusing and even intimidating to seniors. My idea is to make their experience simpler and approachable. It is also a great opportunity of helping senior who become victims of depression due to loneliness.
Grey Geeks see technology as a means to accomplish powerful outcomes, not as an end in itself. Grey Geeks teach seniors how to use mainstream devices and applications that are popular among all age groups in order to promote integration and relevance. Grey Geeks uses technology to spread awareness, connect age-groups, organize events, simplify technology and have fun! Grey Geeks works with organizations to develop programs, tools to empower older adults ease into technology.
For the poster series I selected persuasive direction. I wanted to show the possibilities senior adults will achieve if they are better
connected via technology. The primary intention of my poster series communicates the benefit of staying connected secondly how Grey Geek can help senior adults ease into technology.
Narrative Book Series_
As a narrative deliverable I decided to design pocket book series as tech tutorials. These books are self help quick reference books. Each one covers three separate subjects; computer, internet, and networking. They are easy to use and easy to carry guide books for senior tech novices. An initiative by Greek Geeks to empower senior adults.
For the Website, I decided to divide into 4 parts; about, WebWise (tech tutorials), shop and connect. Besides introducing the organization, team and objectives the website aims to provide practice tutorials for tech novices (after registration), inform them about upcoming events and latest buzz in technology relevant to senior adults. The website also works as an online store for Grey Geeks branded products that can be bought by and for senior adults.
I designed five screen. The first screen is the home screen. The next two screen are about the brand and the team behind Grey Geeks. The third is the tutorial video screen under WebWise and the third is the shop screen which displays Grey Geeks branded products.
The smart phone seems intimidating because of its several features, complex navigation and multiple touch-points. Grey Geeks app is a possible answer to that problem. Which simplifies tech experience for senior adults. I designed four screens to introduce the concept of this app. The first screen displays the brand or welcome screen. The second screen displays simple, large icons for each function. The third and fourth further explores the contact and connect function respectively.
