  1. Faced with uncertain times, people are looking for ways to economize. We can all see the evidence of environmental crisis brewing alongside the economic downturn, and it's not hard to feel powerless in the face of such global forces. With politicians and businesses seeking avenues to a sustainable future, here at Cooper, we wondered how design might help individuals cut costs while also encouraging behavior that was environmentally responsible.

    These videos explore the conceptual design of Economizer, a service that helps consumers save money while making sustainable choices. The service consists of a core set of internet-aware services with optional components such as hardware data collectors, social networking applications, and dedicated smart phone interfaces.

  3. (Episode 3)

    Here at Cooper, we find that looking at the world from the perspective of users and their goals makes us notice a lot of bad interactions in our daily lives. Being solution-minded designers, we can’t help but pick up a whiteboard marker to scribble out a better idea. (Just ask our partners and friends—we really can’t help ourselves).

    This sort of thing makes a fun thought exercise, so we thought we’d share it with you as a series of narrated slide shows we’ve called “The Drawing Board.” These aren’t meant to be slick, highly-produced demos—just some ideas we’ve thrown up on the board to stimulate thought and discussion. So…enjoy. Discuss. Design.

Being solution-minded designers, we can’t help but pick up a whiteboard marker to scribble out a better idea. (Just ask our spouses and friends—we really can’t help ourselves).

  5. Everyone daily involves friends into decision-making processes. This or That (ToT) is a mobile application that leverages on social network in order to empower users in making more informed every-day decisions and improve the shopping experience.

    ToT participants can describe topics that they are interested in and assign to each of them group of friends whose opinion is valuable is valuable on that particular topic. Later on, This or That users can create a survey on their mobile phone or PC to poll their friends on a particular decision that they are about to make. While creating a new survey, a user can involve own opinion leaders which can instantly support the decision-making twittering their preference.

    This or That is supported by a dynamic reputation and trust system that changes according to the vote feedbacks and quality comments that every participant sends. Each interaction is evaluated both by participants and by the application algorithms in order to establish an expertise ranking for each topic.

    Team
    Federico Casalegno, David Boardman, Brian McMurray, Steve Pomeroy, Jason Terhorst, Carl Yu, Lauren Silberman.
