pops in the park map testing

kaylie and i had a great time with our family!! carter loved deciphering the clues and finding where the sculpture was on the map. mother brooke, was ecstatic to collect her sticker at each station, and then going through all the fun photos to then post on instagram with their assigned hashtag. once we found all the sculptures the kids wanted to keep taking pictures with pop, he laid in the bed of flowers and went and smelled the tulips. thank you to our wonderful participants! they were great! we really enjoyed their company and feedback.

color code question marks next to clues with the ones on the map to make locating them easier for those not familiar with all the sculptures in the park

and then michele & beth from the nelson would like the hair to come back, but to keep the color in concept.

pops! nelson crit draft

for the final project in ux we are working with the nelson atkins museum. we’ve been assigned to help create the pieces for their summer sculpture park activation. this year it’s called pops in the park, and will be on father’s day. partnered with kaylie with this project, this is the¬†draft we mocked up! we created a pops character that you take around on an adventure through the park. the map comes with a pop out of pops for which you follow the clues to take photographs with pops and tag them for a chance to win a membership to the museum. still needs a variety of refinement and perhaps a little more fun on the back and front covers. but so far so good.

acme final

Rockabilly originated as a music genre featuring artists like Elvis and Stray Cats. Currently, rockabilly is a fashion trend for both men and women. To gain the look, add a little grease to your hair, red on your lips, and/or top it with a clean shave. Rockabilly people hang out at car shows and can portray a tough attitude. I took inspiration from their interests and attire to create the branding system for Acme, a cosmetics line catered to this fashion trend.

rockabilly ideas

the products i’ve got here are hair pomade, cherry red lipstick, and hair tonic that i am transforming into after shave [i just liked this bottle better]


ux:5. rockabilly

next in user experience, time to morph into the mind set of a subculture to brand a collection of products. after drawing at random from my classmates choices, i landed with rockabilly. a fashion trend and music dominant culture. the pompadour, tattoos, leather jackets, cuffed jeans, car shows and good ol’rock and roll. mood boards below, as well as on pinterest.

ux:4. how to final video

a quirky, fun how to for the crafty parent ready to take on an easy activity with their child.

nick and i strayed quite a bit from our original plan from storyboarding. once we began filming, we just had to go with the flow and work around our star miss five year old lauren. who did a great job making our video portray the characteristics that we set out to capture in our video. once we put the video together we were quite satisfied with having no voice over, but the narration does add a bit more whimsy, character and also added clarification of the process. both versions are posted below.
