Connect Manningham Application Prototype

The Brief

Design a solution that will connect members of the community with services, groups and information that would provide support and a greater sense of engagement.

Victoria Police initiated a community connectivity program linking services and groups to people within the Manningham area.

Our objective was to design a solution that would enable members of the community to identify services, groups and events that would provide them with support and help them feel more connected.


Proof of concept & prototype creation of the Connect Manningham web and mobile apps

After our discovery workshops, we quickly conceptualised a solution that addressed a wide range of needs. These included crime prevention and personal safety information, social and cultural interaction, event management and storytelling.

As a result, we designed the UX/UI and prototyped a user-friendly mobile and web application to reduce the feeling of isolation by creating an inclusive and connected village.

As a member of Victoria Police I was looking to create a mobile phone application that would enable members of the community to identify services and groups that would provide them with support and help them feel more connected.

I approached Adam from IdeaBox and from the start sensed that he had an understanding and passion for what I was trying to achieve. Adam actively listened to my thoughts and ideas; we worked together closely to create a concept product that reflected exactly what I had envisioned. I had limited IT knowledge prior to approaching Adam, but he stepped me through the process, breaking down each component to the basics so that I could understand and feel like I still had control over the product. Thanks to Adam’s work I was able to put together a business proposal to seek funding. The support I received from Adam was nothing short of fantastic.
