yes, no and WOW!

Wow is the one to aim for”

The Brief:

Wink was the result of the first Digital Design 45 hour SLAM! while I was attending Vancouver Film School. The brief was to design a system to solve a current social problem using existing or upcoming technology within the time limit of 45 hours.


My Role: Project Management, Branding, Acting

The Client: Vancouver Film School


The Challenge:

With only 45 hours to create the impossible, our team of six worked non-stop to develop a well thought out and rounded dating app.


The Outcome:

Wink is a mobile dating app for use with a platform such as Google Glasses or smart contact lenses. Users see other people using the app through augmented reality and if interested, can then ‘wink’ at the person to show approval. That person is then notified, and if also interested, can ‘wink’ back. Only after this will they have access to each other’s profiles. Wink breaks down the awkwardness of meeting people in public and is a great way to break the ice.
