With the rise of smartphones, cellular data has become an important aspect of day-to-day life. Although many people have smartphones, there are those who still do not and if they do, they may not have a data plan. Whether it be sending out an email, calling a parent, or gaining an education, our data is a valuable asset that we can provide to those who are not fortunate to have it. We provide food, shelter, and water to those who are in need, so why not our data? With Data Donor, you can do just that.
Note: This is a fictional project.
Donating cellular data is a blue sky concept which is still out of reach for our times; however, the concept is proposed as a free mobile app for philanthropist all around the world willing to donate a portion of their monthly data plan to those who need data for educational, communication, creative, or day-to-day purposes. Data Donor provides a canvas for donors to track, manage, and share their data while establishing a personal connection toward those receiving it.
The first step was to define a brand in which the mobile platform would exist under. The brand was visually simple in order to make users feel like anyone could pick up the product and begin donating. It was important that users could easily begin using the platform and maintain use of the experience.
