as a Resource
The technologies that provide us increased productivity, the ability to communicate, and access information, are pulling us away from the central tasks we set out to complete or taking our attention away in social settings.
How might we help improve people’s lives to make conscious use of technology to
extend their abilities while avoid its pitfalls?
Participants felt least distracted by technology when doing activities they loved with the people they loved.
Participants felt like the social benefits of technology involved A) using it as a resource (e.g. FB events) B) staying connected with friends & family
Participants felt notifications were a major distraction and the iPhone feature of time limits on applications did not feel incredibly useful
There are many applications that aim to help users limit their notifications or time on
social media. And less applications that offer better uses of that same time.

Here is the idea behind the logo, part of the style guide, and final prototype.
Features to enhance, change, or remove based on participant feedback, research, and my own observations.
