The evolution of the analogue
fingerprint procedure

Analogue fingerprinting serves a big role when it comes to crime scene investigation. This project revolved around how to streamline and unify the procedure and to make a realistic and tangible concept that in a near future could be implemented.

Project: Umeå Institute of Design
Collaboration partner: Swedish Police
Participants: solo
Time span: 12 weeks
When: winter 2021

A messy procedure

The analogue process of taking fingerprints i quite time consuming and non unified. By analysing and trying out the procedure myself,  numerous pain points arose that clearly showed that this vital procedure could be improved.

Learning outcome

– Iterative process
– Making analogue mockups
– Developing a functional, final concept 

This project was all about analogue. Making rapid mockups and prototypes really helped me to understand which direction was the most favourable for the concept. Developing a final prototype that is almost fully functional was also a big learning in different ways.
