In the international week we had a nice concept about Ikea. Check out the concept of the international week here.
As seen the video of the international week you can imagine it would be great to have NFT’s to give away to customers in return. The more you recycle at Ikea the more rare NFT’s you can receive! This is a way to motivate customers to not throw away used products but to recycle them. These NFT’s can also be sold and rise in value. On this concept I wanted to add more options with NFT’s. In my individual project I am going to do more research about NFT’s and how they can be created and sold. NFT’s can also be used to show your status in the metaverses nowadays. I used the following methods this project: requirements prioritization, available product analysis, literature study, pitch, ideation, sketching, prototyping, concepting, expert interview & benchmark creation. You can see my whole project below in phases how I did it and what the results are. I used the double diamond method for these 4 weeks. The conclusion is that the inside scope has been done very well and the outside scope still has to be done. I have my NFT’s created and got a lot of positive feedback! I do learned that its very important to do research about what has been already done in similar concepts. The learning outcomes for this project:
- Learning outcome 1: User interaction (analysis & advice)
- Learning outcome 2: User interaction (execution & validation)
- Learning outcome 3: Software design
- Learning outcome 4: Future-oriented organisation
- Learning outcome 5: Investigative problem solving
- Learning outcome 6: Personal leadership
- Learning outcome 7: Goal-oriented interaction
This is my final projectplan with all the information needed.
Week 1 | Discover phase
First iteration project plan, start of research document – research based on the research questions.
Week 2 | Define phase
Ideation/concepting session (create set of ideas / concepts). First sketches to further improve the possible concepts. Create userstories.
Week 3 | Develop phase
Start working on the products. Create the NFT’s and get them on the marketplace. Starting Node.JS to generate NFT’s.
All the NFT’s created by node.js with all the seperate layers I made in Photoshop:
Week 4 | Deliver phase
Transferdocument/advice document for stakeholder. Finishing off portfolio. Expert interview (Ruud Dankers)
I had an expert interview with Ruud Dankers as Head of Innovation from TDE (//www.tde.nl/). Ruud is working on the newest, digital technologies that are appliable for sportmarketing concepts.
In the expert interview I showed Ruud my progress of the NFT’s. He really liked the way I did it and technically is was all correct. He had some suggestions to make the NFT’s more different because they look almost all the same right now. Maybe a good idea to make different trees and grounds. Next to that he also had a meeting this week with a company that has kind of the same idea to sell NFTree’s. So I am on the right track! He gave me these links to have a look at to get some more inspiration. //coorest.io/ & //www.aerial.is/.
I learned a lot of this meeting with Ruud Dankers, he showed me some examples how it should be done and how I could improve my project. This expert interview was very valuable for me!
