Objective: Design an interactive experience to encourage younger audiences to visit the Isabella Gardner Museum.
Did You Know: the average museum visitor spends only 15-30 seconds looking at a painting?
Heist is a mobile game where users play as 'art thieves,' tasked with finding certain pieces of art and stealing them through their mobile device. Heist is designed to get teenagers and young adults to actively look at art instead of aimlessly browsing, as well as encourage them to visit in groups. Players win the game by stealing the priciest pieces. The art they "steal" increases in value the longer they look at it, encouraging a deeper connection with the art.
The UI is designed in Sketch and prototyped using Invision.
DOPPIO means double in Italian.
Doppio Laptop Sleeve is a dual-function case that protects your laptop while it is transported, and provides a cooling area while it is in use.
This project included designing the laptop sleeve, packaging, and logo.
Doodle Maker is a program designed to jumpstart the creative sketching process, generating random shapes that invites users to add their own marks and create unique drawings. It is inspired by the Scribble Game, where one person draws a random squiggle and another tries to turn it into something recognizable.
I developed the Doodle Maker as a way to eliminate the fear of the BLANK CANVAS.
Below is a collection of process shots and doodles. The Doodle Maker was field tested in the general public at MassArt and at the CyberArts gallery. I designed the physical interface to overlay the Wacom tablet so users can easily change tools, save, and start new drawings. Doodlers of all ages and skills contributed to the Doodle Depository, resulting in over 100 unique drawings!
