Develop Your Own Mobile Services

"Design shapes the way we live. So it ought to serve everyone." Eva Maddox

The SATIN II project&s goal is to make it easier for the end-user to develop mobile services. Presently, to be able to do it, you need software-programming skills. SATIN II is a collaboration project between the Centre for Distance-spanning Technology at Luleå University of Technology, Umeå University, the County Administrative Board of Norrbotten, Norrbotten County Council, and the companies Ericsson, TeliaSonera, BNearIT, Mobilaris, Mobizoft, Neava and Unimob. The project started about a year ago and will continue for two more years.

During this Monday and Tuesday several of the participants gathered at Umeå Institute of Design for seminars and workshops. The first day the participants dealt with matters of equality and the second day they had a workshop about brand identity, how to identify the users and their needs and subsequently what demands that puts on the product.
