Approach
I want to improve packages’ security by raising the neighborhood’s awareness, strengthening neighborhood relations, and encouraging people to help each other. This way, people will have peace of mind and trust that they’ll receive their purchases safely.

I kept optimizing and adjusting the project’s direction throughout the year through constant investigation, collecting feedback, and interviews. A comprehensive, complex, and complete visual solution is used to solve the problem I have drawn up in the end. Deliverables include printouts, UI, UX, and environment design.

Raise Awareness

In addition to safety awareness, there is also a need to raise awareness of the neighborhood.

PART 1 // RAISE AWARENESS

Part 1.png

Use environmental signs and posters to raise people's awareness.

Through environmental signs and posters, I
hope that people pay more attention to their neighbors and let them know that we still have each other’s backs even in the most challenging time.

PART 2 // HELP EACH OTHER

Make Connection.png

Create a mutually
beneficial neighborhood

Instead of watching your neighbors or spying on the environment. A better idea is to help them or work with them to reduce your losses and make your package safer.

5.1.png

SET UP YOUR SCHEDULE TO LET YOUR NEIGHBOR KNOW WHEN YOU CAN HELP.

To make it easier to match a user with a helpful neighbor, the user can set up a schedule and see
the matching neighbor later on the map page.

6.1.png

MANAGE YOUR PACKAGES WITH A CLEAR SCHEDULE.

The system will store the packages you hold or receive according to your schedule. You will not miss a single package.

7.1.png

Find a neighbor on the map and let them take care of your package.

Based on the schedule you provide, you can select a neighbor on the map that already matches your schedule to help you. Similarly, you can accept orders and hold packages for others.

Receive packages quickly and safely.

PART 3 // HELP MORE

Help more 2.png

Collaborate with small shops to provide a secure transit spot for your package.

We work with small businesses around the community to set up a pickup spot in the store. Customers can get their own packages with only a reasonable tip. Assuaging the anxiety of online shoppers has provided a new source of income for some businesses around the community.

Let your neighbor know you joined the community.
