For the final project of Interaction Design MA’s first semester (2017), Estonian Academy of Arts students worked on a project to redesign the future of banking with the new features of PSD2, European Union’s recently announced financial laws. Coinsbook is a result of this project, which a mobile-based application concept to help users to share small amounts of money in a more friendly way. If you owe your friend and want to pay back with a coffee, this is the right app for you!
Client: Swedbank Estonia
Type: App Interaction
Duration: 2 months
Collaboration with: Dux
After realizing that safety, privacy, time, simplicity, and trust were the main values; I decided to focus on the use of coins. The experiences I had while living in Estonia where cash is not so used inspired my journey through creating this concept where users can share small amounts of money with their friends in a nonformal and simple way. Instead of transferring money through mobile banking, Coinsbook will enable users to send promotion codes (of Taxify, Rimi, R-Kiosk etc.) to their friends. Every user will be able to set their wish list so that they won’t receive promotion codes that they wouldn’t use.
