Playground Society Details


View Case Study

Playground Society is a way to bring more play into your life. Participants in Playground Society will get 2 or 3 text messages a week, each a simple Play Mission. The missions are designed to be fun, and meant to fit seamlessly into your normal day-to-day. As an extension of the play, you may also snap a picture of the mission and upload it to your profile. After you receive a mission, you have effectively unlocked it, and you can see everyone's documentation for that mission.

This was my thesis project at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). I spent five months on it at the end of the two year program. The intended scope is a small community to start, picking up new members (players) all the time, and growing indefinitely.

Why this project is worthy of a UX Award:
