A service prototyping practice to solve problems while shopping at Costco.

This project done at 2018 while I was studying at CCA for a prototyping course, where we just focus on raising questions and quick prototyping solutions. I didn't post this project at that time because I thought the project looks unfinished, unsolved, and naive.

But after working in the industry, I realized that the beauty of this project is to try different approaches to find problems and tell a story to our audiences.

Question: Have you ever give up buying something at Costco concerned the final price because of the large-sized package, or whether you can finish such amount of items on time?

Please check the Google Sheets: UITerms.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XMdzbylu10auGFyfJjc5yzn3-rYk-89rqBna0TBvL2M/edit?usp=sharing

  • The Google Sheets gives you a quick view of UI terms you need to know as a product designer.
  • You can review those terms and see if you are familiar with them.
  • Using UI terms to describe your design makes it easily understandable to PM and Devs.
  • Leave your thoughts, questions, related references by commenting on the Google Sheets. It will help me iterate the UITerms Sheets. I need everybody’s feedback and to make it better.
  • Save and share to your friend. …
