dc.description.abstractThis thesis work is a collaboration project with a German power tool manufacturer. The main objective of this thesis work is to explore user experiences and emotional demands within a Do-It-Yourself home improvement and renovation context. Based on the findings of the research and analysis, a mobile app design concept will be created. This research finds that Do-It-Yourself home improvement and renovation works contain very complex details and processes behind the simple outlook. Nonprofessional people usually feel confused due to a lack of practical knowledge and experience to accomplish their goals. Through utilizing a self-created theoretical analysis toolkit, the key user experiences and emotional demands were defined. Furthermore, the design personas and value propositions connect the theoretical analysis and design ideation. Lastly, according to the research and analysis conclusions, a high fidelity interface design of the mobile app was created to represent the research results of the thesis study.en
