UID – Keeping Calm


From May until the beginning of June we’ve tutored Interaction Design master students of the Umeå Institute of Design. For their service design project called “Keeping Calm Supportive Radiotherapy Experiences for Children with Cancer” they had to develop concepts of how the treatment experience could be reshaped to more fully support the children and their families, and minimise their anxiety and worry. At the end of their project they had to present videos and interactive prototypes that explains their concept to hospital staff from Umeå, Stockholm and Uppsala. We helped them out with storytelling, storyboards, Adobe After Effects and filming.

Here are their videos for the service design project ‘Keeping Calm’:
