penmap / Service and Product design


Have you ever read a novel or heard a story that made you want to become like one of the characters?
‘Penmap’ is a dedicated tablet and SNS that makes it possible to read someone's life notes and to reflect on your own life experience for deeper self-understanding.
‘Penmap’ is a place for anonymously sharing experiences of ordinary people. To read someone's notes, you have to write down your own story first. There are no "Like" or "Comment" buttons because this SNS is a private place for yourself. Poring over the notes of others will contribute to your emotional well-being, and may even provide a hint to the question "How do I want to live?”.
