Say Hello to Jack
Updated: Sep 12, 2021
Hello! Thanks for being here. This is the first of a series of posts introducing Hello Jack to the world, and explaining the inspiration, purpose, and thought behind its development.
Some quick info:
Hello Jack is an online platform that will be mobile and/or web-based
It will be used for multi-generational skill sharing between members
Multi-generational means across generations (i.e elderly and young adults)
Hello Jack is a Movember funded project, and is made possible through their support
It is being co-developed by Movember Canada and Knot Lab Inc.
What to expect:
As we (Knot Lab) develop the project, we will update our insights page with articles that go deeper into the thought behind the design + development decisions we are making. We want to bring you into the process to learn as much as we are as we go.
Social isolation amongst the elderly, and men in particular
The mental health implications of social isolation
Universally accessible UX/UI design
Technology and social interaction
Skill sharing and mentorship
Designing for the elderly, where we have succeeded and fallen short
Generational skill sharing
Many more to come
