Design is a strategic creative approach to solve problems and meet users' needs. Design is in constant evolution as it continuously adapts to our world and to our users. As designers, it is our job to create products that people love and that serves a purpose beyond ourselves.

Future Checkout

With the rise and spread of COVID-19, we have become highly aware of the things we interact with in our day to day lives. What is one thing that we interact with often that is universally used other than doors? Checkout systems. There are millions of transactions every day and for the most part these transactions are not contactless.

By applying new methods of payment and integrating emerging technology to the user’s experience, this exploration in checkout seeks to create a contactless checkout method in order to reduce touch points within the checkout process for users.

Future Checkout Needfinding

Project Process Book

This exploration in future payment aimed to discover and develop new ways to improve and change checkout. The goal of this project was to create a contact free checkout experience for consumers in order to empower them during the checkout process. The spread of coronavirus has left consumers feeling anxious and fearful at checkout, this project strived to create a checkout experience in which consumers could check out with confidence. This project was also an exploration of the capabilities of a variety of new technologies and how they may be integrated into checkout.  Due to the wide scope of this capstone, the end result was three conceptual proposals that explore different aspects of checkout from the payment method to the process as a whole.
