A service design project aiming to tackle problems within the foster care system. OurHive has the aim to improve the lives of children who have displaced upbringings.
Children in foster care move between multiple homes throughout their life, therefore it is difficult to keep track of their memorabilia due to damage, loss or lack of storage. These children have a displaced upbringing and may not remember due to being placed in care from a young age.
OurHive is a digital service for foster parents to create an archive of memories for a child in their care, as they grow up within the care system. This is personal to each child and moves with them from home to home. Their carer will upload weekly highlights through a digital template involving photos, voice notes and other memorabilia.
OurHive can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, on any device. The design and UI choices represent the idea of combining a displaced childhood, making the hive feel like a steady and ever-growing home for a foster child.
