The Sharing Economy Design Cards
The card deck was developed through a systematic literature review of digital and physical sharing practices. The deck aimed to explore design opportunities characterizing different angles of a sharing economy platform or service.
It sets the foundation to answer the set of core questions, such as “What is being shared?”, “Who is it being shared with?”, “How is it being shared?”, and “Why is it being shared?” . This allows one to create a comprehensive account of sharing practices using five distinctive themes: Content, Audience, Motivations, Privacy & Trust, and User Experience. Each card comprises a design goal, a call to action, background information, a thematic contextualization, and an illustrative example.
The project contributors were:Anton Fedosov, University of Zurich (Switzerland), Jeremías Albano, University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), Masako Kitazaki, TU Delft (The Netherlands), Will Odom, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver (Canada) and Marc Langheinrich, USI Lugano (Switzerland).
You can download the cards and print them for your own use, or you can use the digital version and the associated materials on the Sharing Economy Design Cards dedicated website.
