WEEK 1 - Ideation

The Task

To come up with an app idea to a given theme - namely:

”As long as we have each other - we will never run out of problems”


I interpreted the task positively as being to create an app to be used by friends or colleagues to epxress their problems, and solicit ideas for solutions.


Several aspects to this task. To see how we might creatively approach the problem. How we might express our ideas to the group. Our approach to development of a project, problem highlighting and solving.

I opted to create a short explainer video using Spark which is part of Adobe Creative suite which I am already familiar with. Although this was an exercise, I do actually believe the app is actually a good idea.

I ran the concept past the kind of people I could imagine using it, in the media, in business, and their response was that it might be a good ‘closed community’ secure way or communicating while cutting the clutter and distraction. that other apps suffer from - WhatsApp, WeChat, Facebook etc.

It’s a simple single use focussed app concept.
