What I Did
Illustration, Branding, and Web Design
As a server at a seniors home, I saw many residents struggling with their devices and noticed the lack of resources available to teach seniors about technology. With few options beyond staff and family for assistance, seniors often felt helpless and gave up on their devices. Recognizing the need for a solution, I came up with the idea of a manual that could empower seniors with the skills and knowledge to navigate their devices with confidence.
“Old Dog New Tech” aims to make technology more accessible to seniors by creating senior-friendly manuals that cater to their needs. By empowering seniors with the confidence to take on any tech problem, the company hopes to bridge the digital divide and help seniors keep up with their loved ones and the world around them.
Research and Analysis
My readings highlighted the importance of catering to the specific needs of seniors, including their accessibility requirements and preferences. This meant incorporating a minimal design with high contrast between text and background, using San Serif Fonts, and increasing the space between text and images. In UX UI design, it also meant creating simple navigation and providing clear explanations of symbols and other features.
As Old Dog New Tech caters to seniors, it is essential that the website's content is in a clear and easy-to-understand manner. To ensure a seamless experience, I aimed to design an intuitive user flow that can prevent potential problems and create a better experience for seniors.
By simplifying the user journey, I hope to make the process of accessing and understanding information effortless for seniors, and ultimately make Old Dog New Tech a user-friendly platform for all.
