PROJECT

This project’s main objective was to make Ball State’s David Owsley Museum of Art (DOMA) more accessible to people who have disabilities through an app. The challenge was to only solve issues through the app, and not make changes to DOMA. 

TARGET AUDIENCE

 

I decided to make an app for autistic adults who are non-verbal or have difficulty speaking at times. 

The Problem

COMMON BEHAVIOR FOR AUTISM

 

Must follow certain routines

May have delayed movement, cognitive or learning skills Anxiety, stress, or excessive worry, especially in social situations

Gets overstimulated easily

May have unusual reactions to the way things sound, smell, taste, look, or feel

INACCESSIBLE FACTORS IN DOMA

 

Maps/everything are hard to find, have to talk to an employee

 

Flickering lights and loud groupsof people are overstimulating

 

Difficult to read information due to small type and dim lighting

 

Difficult to align information to the correct object/artwork

DOMA is not an accessible environment for autistic people due to a lack of quiet spaces, illegible or unclear information, dim or flickering lights, and the lack of opportunities for self-help (maps and signs for bathrooms, lockers, wheelchairs, disposable ear plugs, entrances, elevators, and desks).

Style Guide

COLORS

According to some studies, it is shown that the majority of autistic people respond better to blue, green, pink, and skin tones colors for UX design. For this app specifically, each color is assigned to its section. Blue is communication, orange is exploration, green is scheduling and pink is gaming.
