They are entitled to change the colours of the walls, the floor, and place any item into the space. Besides that, users can customise their items to make it more personalised. After customising their item, or creating their own item, they can choose to share it with their friends on Facebook.

SMP: The influence of “play your imagination” in the design process

Concept Description: To answer to the SMP, I created a game that allows users to create their dream workspace. They are entitled to change the colours of the walls, the floor, and place any item into the space.
Besides that, users can customise their items to make it more personalised. After customising their item, or creating their own item, they can choose to share it with their friends on Facebook. They can also upload it onto the microsite, which allows users to share their creation and screenshots of their dream workspace. From the microsite, users can also download items that other users uploaded.

Digital Platform: Game Application
                         Microsite 
                                  Facebook
After clicking the start button, users will be brought to a page where there’s some selections. By changing the colour of the wall, the results can be viewed instantly.
Items that are picked can also be placed immediately into the space. The buttons on the bottom right enables users to navigate through their space by going left or right, top or bottom and zoom in or zoom out. The share button connects to the microsite wherelse the Facebook button connects to Facebook.
After choosing the item in the menubar, users are brought to a page where they can customise their items. This includes the colour and the size. They can also add patterns or texts onto their item, and even modify the object using the tools given. Buttons from top to bottom are: Colours, Image and Patterns, Pen Tool, Rulers, Font, Paintbrush, Shapes and 3D Model Tool.
By clicking the Image and Patterns button, users will be brought to a page where they can create their own patterns or images. 
After creating them, they can save it and then apply them onto the objects. The size selection tool enables them to determine the size of their image or pattern.
Users can end this game at any time after they are done with it. A message will be shown to remind them of the launch of the publication.
Users can always share the image of their dream workspace or their customised item on Facebook. This allows other Facebook users to know about this game application thus creating a viral effect.
A microsite is built for the users to upload their creations, where other users can download it from and use it in their individual workspace. This enhances the interactivity among users. They can also upload screenshots of their dream workspace and share it among the users.
