Passport of the Future

In collaboration with the Bundesdruckerei GmbH we explore in participatory design activities what challenges exist with the actual travel identification card – the passport. In workshop situations we discussed, discovered and evaluated user impressions that are relevant for the next passport generation.
The results of role play games in airport experiences, cultural probes of a journey, a future scenario card game, prototyping sessions and other activities were the base for a collection of user citations and requirements the Bundesdruckerei GmbH uses for the further development of the document.
We created conceptual prototypes based on the users’ needs and evaluated them with a group of users. Another step was to define recommendations for the further design decisions of the passport.
