"Neighborhood" Interactive exhibit. Museum of History and Industry, Seattle, Washington.
I created the look and feel, multimedia design, user interface, map and the neighborhood sign feature along with some of the photography for the project.
The project was to design an interactive map for the Puget Sound area neighborhoods. The map was in the mid-century section of the museum so I designed the map to reflect that time period through color, form and fonts along with the spirit of Seattle—fun, smart and quirky.
The map was a combination map and diagram. Each neighborhood had a symbol. This helped alleviate the problem of changing or disputed neighborhood boundaries in Seattle and Puget Sound.
This interactive celebrates the history as well as recording new stories about the neighborhoods. The Neighborhood sign is made up of letters from famous historic signs around the Seattle area. When you touch a letter it shows a photo of what sign the letter came from and then a new letter takes it's place.
Function: This interactive celebrates the history of the neighborhoods as well as recording new stories from visitors.
