Dimitrios Spyridon Chytiris
U101 Design Thinking
My name is Dimitrios Spyridon Chytiris, and I am from Corfu, Greece. I moved to the UK in 2016 from Colombia and I started studying Computing and IT and Design at the Open University in October of 2022. After graduating I would like to work at the Open University to help more people accomplish their dreams.
The project I chose to submit is a travel edition of the board game I designed for an assignment. It is based on the service of transportation by bus, and it encourages healthy public transport etiquette by awarding points to passengers who behave well while it takes away points from passengers who act poorly.
Public transportation is a vital service for many different groups of passengers such as students, the elderly and people heading to work or returning from work every day.
As a user of public transportation, I had experience of the difficulties passengers face when using public transportation. However, I wanted the players to have a more realistic and relatable experience when playing the game and for that reason I researched online reviews of bus companies and included the feedback passengers left to enrich the gameplay of my board game. Public transportation plays an important role in communities as it decreases the carbon footprint of citizens, reduces congestion in towns and cities and offers cheaper access to the job market.
