Adobe Creative Jam Finalists
CSSMB team You Otter Iterate became top ten finalists in the College + Netflix Creative Jam with Adobe XD. Over the course of 48 hours, the team created a prototype for a streaming platform that could connect users together. Anna Stubler, Calvin Norwood, and Nicole Freeman entered the design competition on June 22, 2020 with the project, Watch & Learn.
You Otter Iterate competed against 2,300 students who formed 985 teams, representing 320 institutions from USA, Canada and UK. The challenge was to design a third-party desktop web site or app where the community can celebrate shared stories together through communal and authentic experience.
You Otter Iterate’s project Watch & Learn is based on the idea that difficult conversations and shared stories from different backgrounds bring people to a better place of understanding. Watch & Learn is a shared streaming platform for young adults to learn more about social issues they are passionate about, and those that they have little exposure to. Users can explore and expand their perspectives through movies and television shows within a diverse community by creating and joining watch parties that offer interactive features to have meaningful conversations with others, and resources to take action. These shared stories allow users to create understanding through authentic experiences, and build upon them through recommended and personally curated content.
