You, Me and Money with RMIT
Co-design of a digital tool to raise awareness of economic abuse among young people
Design research and co-design facilitation
Creative prototyping and ideation
Young people, who are new to both the worlds of relationships and finance are particularly susceptible to this form of abuse. Our challenge was to give young people—and the people who care about them—the tools to have better conversations about love and money.
Through design research we uncovered that young people are not comfortable diving straight into content about economic abuse. Because the concept unfamiliar to them, they feel like it won’t apply and they disengaged. They first need a hook to engage with, before introducing the idea of what is healthy in relationships and finance.
Once we knew this we worked with young people to design a solution that would introduce them to the concepts in a playful but not not patronising way.
