AN INTERACTIVE GUIDE FOR IMMIGRANTS
CREATING E-SERVICES WITH SERVICE DESIGN METHODS
An interactive guide Väylä was created in collaboration with Finnish Immigration Service (Migri). Our task was to get to know to our partner company and create a service design solution based on our insights and discoveries.
Migri is an agency that processes and decides on matters related to immigration, residence, refugee issues, and Finnish nationality. We noticed that the issues Finnish Immigration Service is dealing with are complex and that the applying processes were not clear enough.
Our team produced an user-centered interactive solution, Väylä, to be part of the website of Finnish Immigration Service fixing the occurred problems in the e-services.
