Mission Rings

by Millicent Wong


Inspired by the study-/ work-from-home situation and my experience with online classes, I have identified the issue of digital fatigue, partly due to the loss of ‘surprise’ and ‘unexpected moments’ in a digital environment, where transitions between each call or interaction are seemingly blurred.


This has led me to researching into the notion of serendipity, which in turn became an experiment where I played around with randomised calls with friends throughout one week to gather feedback on the mechanism.


As a result, I have created Mission Ring as an app which sparks and facilitates serendipitous interactions in a digital space as much of spontaneous communication has been lost compared to being in a physical environment.


Mission Rings ultimately aims to break monotony and reimagine online interactions through sparking serendipitous interactions between you and your friends through playful missions.
