The Project

Our Mission

With countless productivity-based apps on today’s market, the emphasis often lies on a mindless completion of everyday tasks and an internalized expectation of productivity. Memento aims to shift this focus towards meaningful long-term visions and aspirations, encouraging individuals to cherish and remember their journeys. Memento also seeks to help users intentionally with reflection and ‘rememory’ with a focus on growth and gratefulness.

Our Process

A1: Needfinding

We interviewed a wide range of people about their lives and habits, letting them lead us through their daily highs and lows. We then spent time examining tensions and looking at underlying emotion and meaning in our interviews.

A2: Experience Prototype

We continued to interview participants, now with more focus on feelings of control and productivity. We generated POVs from our interviews to help flesh out our understanding of existing needs, and then voted to narrow down on the most interesting problem spaces. We then came up with potential routes to addressing the core tension of the POV by writing down HMWs en-masse, voting on the best, and testing our hypotheses with experience prototypes.

A5: Low-fi Prototype

We generated many variations of mobile and alternative UIs, and used the aspects of our favorites in our low-fi figma prototype. We tested this prototype with participants to highlight what changes we would need to make for the medium-fi prototype.

A9: Heuristic Evaluation Report

We used our learnings from participant interviews to improve and solidify our prototype, testing our potential fixes with participants along the way.

A8: High-Fidelity Prototype

We created our high-fidelity protype through react native and expo. Open the README for instrutions on how to open our prototype! Our halfway milestone presentation includes some major design changes and progress updates.
