iMemory for iPhone
UI • UX • Content Design
Students were tasked with pitching a UX design for a product that would solve a modern humanitarian issue.
BIG IDEA (SOLUTION)
iMemory is an integrated digital legacy solution for Apple iPhone. Using apple’s existing iCloud technology, iMemory allows apple users to determine how their data is handled once they depart into the next life.

iCloud & IOS Integration: Users select their digital inheritors via your existing contacts list. Inheritors would not need to have an iPhone, but would need to create an iCloud account to access the digital legacy data. As pictured below, the application would also allow users to determine when their selected legacy contact is notified of their digital inheritance status.
Case Study References
In 2016, the discussion of digital legacy began when Canadian Citizen Peggy Bush sued (and won) a lawsuit against Apple Inc., to obtain her husband’s password in the aftermath of his death.
In the aftermath, some companies, like Facebook, took notice of the importance that digital data carried for modern day citizens across the globe. In 2017, they launched a “legacy contact” feature.
