Final Project

For my final project, I identified a design problem, analyzed the purpose of the design and the audience, provided solutions to the design problem, and built a mockup of a redesign that creates solutions to some of the design issues. In addition, I analyzed and discussed cognitive and social psychology theories that can be applied to design, and how they are relevant to my design problem and solution.

For this assignment, I chose two social sites, or platforms, and sketched the social tasks that can be done by the users. I compared the two platforms, described the intrinsic and extrinsic motivations for users to perform these tasks, and wrote about what I discovered.
