Remotely Connected is an explorative interaction design project searching for ways to bring back the social interactions that vanished with the beginning of the home office. The value of social interaction has been less prioritized in the transition to the new way of working. Today, we are still communicating based on the tools, relationships, and culture we had before the pandemic. The project proposes a workplace social platform TouchBase for the final concept. The service lets users tailor the modes of communication based on their preferences. The concept was developed based on a series of explorations, design interventions and discussions around them. User involvement is an important keyword in this project. The ideas for the explorations were drawn from the remote ideation workshop. This project explored possibilities for new modes of playful, nuanced social communication suited for the new way of work. Also, it encouraged people to think outside the box of given digital solutions we have in our hands today.
