Sleeper Train Experience Design Project

This is our first major project of the semester. To improve the sleeper train from Glasgow to London run by Scotrail. The first thing we did was send 4 of our classmates to London on the train so they could experience what it was like to be a passenger. On that night, we also surveyed 20 passengers, asking them the pros and cons of their experience. Now that we have our data collected, we mapped it to see where there were points of friction in terms of service, interaction and physical product. Now we are on the next step to discovering oppurtunites for design to improve the users experience.

Scotland Road Trip

This past weekend my friends Ingrid, Chris and I, went on a 2 day road trip around beautiful Scotland. We started in Glasgow and drove to Sterling where there was a big beautiful peach coloured castle at the top of a hill. From there we drove to the eastern coastal cities; Perth, Dundee, and Aberdeen. The next day, we drove through the northern national park and saw lots of sheep! Then we traveled to the west coast where there were beautiful mountains and locks. Before going home, we went to Lock Lomond, one of the most lovely places in the country.
