Working with Seoul Metropolitan Library, an organization affiliated with the Seoul Metropolitan Government, we built an information service page for non-disabled siblings, 「Me with a Disabled Sibling」 A non-disabled sibling is a person who has a sibling with a disability.

In order to create a service that can actively provide the information users need, a consultative body consisting of library administrators, service design experts, non-disabled siblings, and information researchers was formed to conduct continuous workshops and meetings.

My Contribution

The primary objective of this service was to develop a highly tailored user-centered platform catering to individuals who have disabled siblings. To achieve this, our project extensively focused on understanding the users and their unique challenges and requirements. We dedicated significant time to both secondary and primary research methods. Our approach included desk research, workshops, focused group interviews, in-depth interviews, and surveys.

By meticulously analyzing the data gathered from these research efforts, we gained valuable insights that formed the foundation of the frameworks and user-friendly UX/UI designs for the web page.

Project Brief
「I have a sibling with a disability」 aims to connect non-disabled siblings with information that can directly or indirectly help them with various situations or concerns that non-disabled siblings may experience depending on their life cycle .

To solve the problems of citizens’ lives, the Seoul Metropolitan Library wanted to create an information platform. After reviewing various subjects, we have identified 'non-disabled siblings with siblings with disabilities' who are in the blind spot of existing services or policies and have clear needs for information such as daily life information and disability-related information that are difficult to obtain on their own due to the limitations of caregivers.


We proposed a design-centric service model prioritizing users and analyzing needs of external customers, internal customers, and stakeholders. From this analysis, we derive core values for solutions, aiming to enhance accessibility to vast existing library information and develop strategies for generating necessary information.

Design Process


We conducted comprehensive research methods to develop a holistic understanding of different life stages, that enabling us to make informed decisions and tailor support services accordingly.

A) Desk Research and Pre-Interview:

Collecting information and experiences during childhood, adolescence, and young to middle adulthood periods.

B) In-Depth Interviews: Unraveling the Perspectives of Seniors

To comprehensively grasp the perspectives of the senior age group, we will conduct in-depth interviews with individuals in this life stage.

Their biggest issues can be represented by four factors:

C) Survey: Mapping Information Needs across Different Life Stages

Our survey aims to identify and map the specific information needs that individuals require at different points in their lives. By gathering responses from diverse age groups, we will gain invaluable insights into the changing information needs throughout the various stages of life.

Research Synthesis

We meticulously gathered a comprehensive dataset comprising over 400 unique situations in the research phase. Employing the affinity diagram technique, we efficiently organized this data into distinct clusters based on key themes. And then, we structured these clusters in alignment with the potential users' life cycle. Extracting pertinent keywords from this organization, we formulated precise design principles to guide our future design endeavors.
