Design Sprint for positive impact
We approached NS — the Dutch Railway — and asked them to participate in a Design Sprint to explore how design could alleviate some of the newfound difficulties of travel during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Together, we decided we wanted to focus on designs that added value to the experience rather than limiting passengers further. This led to solutions like colorful LED lights on platforms to help travelers keep a safe distance. We also incorporated designs with positive environmental impacts by using renewable materials like cardboard and even creating greenspace.
