The Challenge
Understanding SG United and its initiatives

A TOUGH NUT TO CRACK #SGUNITED

Before making people understand what SG united is, we had to crack it first.

Through our landscape analysis (surfing the Government subsidiaries we think might be blood-related to SG United) and interviewing GovTech employees, we have come to our understanding of SG United as an overall brand and their initiatives. (Though we keep digging and digging to yet undiscovered side of SG United)

 

SG United is a campaign turned brand that was introduced during the pandemic to unite locals. By effectively providing employment support, skill-building resources, overall wellbeing aid and community-driven events, SG United strives to build rapport amongst the community.

A chart to illustrate the overall situation of SG United currently.

We experimented with using analogies of local brands and products, such as Fairprice and Watsons as well as basic shapes and colours. The results weren't really clear to the audience, hence we used the animated version of the chart above during the presentation.

Future Considerations
Here are Our Conclusions

Utilising research from this project, we synthesised them to key learnings before coming up with a newly designed website that has shown results such as:

  • Users are more aware of SG United initiatives

  • Users can find the information they need 

  • Alternative formats of the website allow the page to be more accessible by all age groups

Future Considerations:

  • Further usability testing after the first round of usability testing and changes

  • Research on having an emotionally intelligent chatbot
