Abstract [en]

This paper describes the process of producing avatars for Jiddr. Today, social media surrounds the lives of youth, and communication via the Internet is an everyday occurrence for most people. Jiddr is an app that was created to give youths a platform for engaging with adults and other youths. It is a moderated forum which gives young people the opportunity to come i contact with adult role models who are knowledgable within various subject areas. On Jiddr, users are anonymous, and this is something I have placed much importance on during the design process. The relationship between critical design and interaction design has been central to this work, and I have created a concept as well as several avatars, which are presented in a prototype, based on previous studies that focus on anonymity. 

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport redogör för processen att ta fram avatarer till föreningen Jiddr. Sociala medier omger ungdomar idag och kommunikation över internet hör till vardagen för de flesta. Jiddr är en samtalsapp som har skapats för att ge ungdomar en plattform där de kan prata med vuxna och andra ungdomar. Ett modererat forum som ger ungdomar möjligheten att möta vuxna förebilder som är kunniga inom olika ämnesområden. På Jiddrär användarna anonyma och detta är något jag lagt vikt vid under skapandeprocessen. Relationen mellan kritisk design och interaktionsdesign har varit central under arbetet. Och utifrån förstudier med fokus på anonymitet har jag skapat ett koncept och några avatarer som presenteras i en prototyp.
