In spring and summer 2015 at The Field Museum in Chicago, I worked with a director, a project manager, and a front-end developer to launch a single-page application-style interactive for the Museum's new China exhibition. For the project, we implemented an agile process based on 2-week sprints in which I led both visual and user experience design. Since China is a permanent exhibition, we could roll out features slowly and iterate based on feedback each time.
Our goals were to:
The home screen draws users in with atmospheric animation and clear calls-to-action to buy tickets and scroll.
The immersive experience includes an interactive timeline through China's dynasties and a panoramic view of the exhibition's east garden.
These features have been fully designed and are awaiting launch.
Landscapes from four different regions of China show the diversity of the country's terrain.
This section is an annotated, scrollable reproduction of the Qingming Scroll, a pictorial representation of daily life in feudal China.
This section showcases well-preserved and researched items from a 13th-century Chinese shipwreck in the Java Sea.
Initial visual and UX design for China are done & implemented, but much remains to be done:
