Mobility Design Guide

Concept development, user research, prototyping, user interface and interactive design of a digital guide

The Mobility Design Guide is a digital handbook for mobility design. Politicians, urban and transportation planners, as well as architects and designers, are provided with inspiration, models, and research principles to support the planning and realization of future-oriented, socially conscious, sustainable mobility concepts.

In contrast to classic reference works, the guide offers arguments for and examples of achieving a transformation in transportation by promoting a new mindset among transportation stakeholders through mobility design.

The guide provides a demonstration and exploration of a user-oriented method for mobility design. Points of departure are the desirable mobility focal points as well as the concrete target formulations and project leverage measures based on these goals. User-centered perspectives are then adopted within a system-oriented approach. This allows for sustainable mobility to be established as a natural transportation option through the design of easy access to intermodal mobility systems and positive user experiences, which results in the affirmation of user identity.
