What is Sarva?

It’s an ALL INDIA, 3 DAYs LONG VIRTUAL HACKATHON OF CREATIVITY, BUSINESS & DESIGN conducted by a Bangalore-based UX Design company, f1studioz. This is a platform where both designers & non-designers from all over the country come to explore the future of design for the Next Billion Users. Participants can register as a team of up to 4 members or as individuals. Individual participants would later be grouped by the organizing team. A fun-packed 3 day-long event, also would be a great avenue for people to network and collaborate with like-minded members of the community.

Purpose of Sarva

The Digital 2020 report says that around 4.54 billion people globally use digital experiences and products. These numbers will continue to soar up in the coming years, with a majority of the next billion users emerging from developing nations. This made f1 studioz wonder what such digital experiences would look like?

How can designers ensure that these experiences are accessible, usable, and user-friendly for the upcoming users? How can we consider and maintain the demographic, regional, and societal aspects and come up with design solutions that are inclusive of all? With these questions in mind, f1 wants to know how designers and non-designers would solve problems.

Phases

1: Revealing the Problem statement:
Rather than conducting the traditional design contest — design to attract, Sarva would like their participants to solve real-life user problems. Thus, each participant will be provided with a problem statement.

2: Mentor allocation and team-up:
Groups of 3 are provided with a mentor to guide them throughout the process. The participant is expected to design the prototypes along with their team members, share the views, ideas, and win prizes too.

3: Ideating and working:
After getting the problem statement and the allocated team, the participants can start pouring out ideas and working on the design of their prototype.

4: Submissions:
The first thing on the third day of the designathon is the submission of the prototype. Every team will be expected to turn in their design on time. No time extensions will be given under any circumstances.

5: Judgement:
A fabulous team of judges will evaluate every design from every aspect without any bias. The winners would be announced on the same day.
