Commissioner: STIHO

Description

Stiho is a supplier of construction, wood and plate materials. Costumers of Stiho are construction companies active in building, renovation and the development of small new building projects. Craftsmanship and knowledge about product and application modes are disappearing rapidly in the Dutch construction industry. Ageing is the main reason for this development. The loss of knowledge and skills is already causing problems in maintaining the quality of project in this industry. The question is how these skills and knowledge can be preserved and circulated to future generations through digital storytelling? The target group that Stiho wants to reach consists of construction companies active in building, renovation and the development of small new building projects. The media application that has to be developed must make this knowledge accessible to craftsmen at the ‘Stiho-building square’ (together with the Giebels formula) and at building locations.

Good work pays off!

The past week seemed like a roller-coaster. One moment we were doing great and the next felt like a disaster. Last week we discovered new roads and by doing the workshop we decided to change the assignment a little.

Bruno was very enthusiastic about the three concepts that we presented. Along with Bruno we decided to focus on 1 of these concepts. We were very happy to obtain this feedback and it felt reassuring to know that we took the right route.

This week we will be focussing on developing the concept further and finishing it up. After that we will start with the design phase! Exciting!
