Project X - Safe media sharing at protests

An image capturing and sharing platform protecting the privacy of protestors.


We designed and prototyped a media capture and sharing app to empower protestors to record and share protest media without the fear of being targeted by the police.


We worked with Maxim Dedushkov and Roland Harwood of Liminal Design to study and implement the principles of Collective Intelligence Design. Collective Intelligence Design aims to make use of various data and information sources, both man and machine, to empower users to make better, safer and easier choices in various domains.




The final prototype for this project was built in Adobe XD.

User onboarding with social logins and selecting a group of friends to share your media with.
Image capture with face detection and swapping.
Securely share with your personal ID being tagged in the post without losing your anonymity.
Share to an event account that keeps an archival database of media of a protest.
