Snap Season (2022)



Augmented Reality
Experience Design
SnapSeason is an Augmented Reality (AR) experience helping friends to reconnect in a convenient and enjoyable atmosphere.

We use AR to transform everyday scenes into treasured moments. These shared vignettes evoke fond memories and allow us to celebrate with friends. By releasing updates year-round, SnapSeason is able to capture all the small delights around us, passing them on to friends and rekindling past friendships.














How might we bridge the awkward gap between the intent of reconnecting with an old friend “out of the blue” and a lighthearted conversation starter that will foster deeper connections? 










Problem


The neutral “likes” is a digital and savvy way for GenZ to socialize. While social media allows us to keep up with each other’s lives easier, it fails to support us in initiating conversations with old friends.

Goal


We wish to provide a comfortable way for GenZ to reach out to friends in a spontaneous and less cumbersome manner.

Solution


By releasing updates year-round, SnapSeason’s able to capture all the small delights around us, passing them on to friends and rekindling past friendships. Users can interact with new virtual environments, add customized messages, and share their love with old friends.
