To evaluate each concept, I ran both online surveys through Mechanical Turk and in-person interviews. The surveys and interviews were used to:
- understand if the concept was effectively addressing the outer level statements and dimensions of an intimate relationship that they were designed to do, and
- whether the concept could be effectively integrated into an intimate relationship.
I also used these insights to understand how each concept could be improved.
I chose Mechanical Turk specifically because it allowed me to affordably reach an audience I would not have access to otherwise. For each concept, I surveyed at least twenty individuals from the U.S.
In-person interviews were designed to help gather details that were not possible through a survey. At least three individuals were interviewed for each concept, with the majority of them being graduate-level design students.
