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 could be implemented in a near future.
Project: Umeå Institute of Design
Collaboration partner: Swedish Police
Time span: 12 weeks
When: winter 2021
The analogue process of taking fingerprints is 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.
– Iterative process
– Making analogue mockups
– Developing a functional concept
This project was all about the 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.
