Abstract [en]

This report describes the development of an application in collaboration with Designingenjörerna AB. The company has worked for a long time with a community platform and they required an application where users can create their own unique profile representations, called Avatar Creator. An Avatar Creator is computer based application, which makes it possible to create a virtual character. The problem area behind this is that, large websites require a lot of administrative work when people upload profile pictures on different community pages. They can contain abusive material or pictures of other people rather than those who created the profile.The questions in this report are, how can an Avatar Creator help user to get a unique profile of himself? What are the advantages and disadvantages of an Avatar Creator? How to create a user-friendly application?To understand how an Avatar Creator works and get ideas to create an application, exiting Avatar Creators were reviewed on the Web.Collaborative work with Designingenjörerna AB was done to pin down the requirements for the Avatar creator application. The requirements were implemented to come up with an application with the features that allows users to create their unique Avatar profile, change looks etc. With this kind of application, the content that the users can choose is limited and controlled. On other hand, if users are allowed to change Avatar appearance too much, it can lead to disturbing images.The usability of the application was evaluated through survey which concluded that further work is needed to make the application user friendly. Users pointed out some functions were hard to understand and help-instructions were missing. Apart from these points, the application was considered good and held up to its purpose of creating a unique Avatar profile easily.
