FlatPack is a desktop app for young adults living in a shared flat and seeking a tool to organize their communal life. It offers four key features that help flat mates to organize themselves.

The given task of this Basic GUI module was to create a screen based application for shared flats. Including desk research, field research, then consolidating the findings in the application and subsequently crating the design. Furthermore, the scope included he fictional client and project partner Migros, Switzerland's largest retail company. The visual appearance and the project should somehow fit with the firm.
POLLS: The polls feature helps flatmates to quickly make surveys that are relevant to their flat community. Planning events ahead or finding out who’s in for dinner has never become this easy. With a few clicks you can create your own poll which will instantly be displayed on every flatmate’s dashboard.
CALENDAR: In the calendar section, flatmates can see what events are happening within their flat community. In the bottom section, organisation tasks are displayed - each colour signifies an individual flatmate, making it easier to identify what your task is at a first glance. For each task there’s an option to write a definition so that all flatmates are under the same understanding what a «completed» task means.
FINANCES: The finance feature allows flatmates to gain an overview of their total expenses. When adding an expense, there’s an option to choose with whom the costs should be shared. Any debts are then calculated and displayed on the right side.
SHOPPING-LIST: Whenever there are items missing within the flat, flatmates can add these in the shopping list - this way other flatmates can instantly see what needs to be purchased on their next trip to the shops. Once having purchased the missing item, it can be crossed out of the list, signalling to all that it has been obtained.
FlatPack was developed in cooperation with Migros and targets young adults who follow the newest trends - with the web-design movement called Brutalist becoming the newest trend in 2018, we’re convinced that Migros should make the first step towards.
