A Microsoft app for the 2015 Designs of the Year Awards by using the Lumia 640 XL, Surface, and Azure.
Visitors who walk around the newly enhanced exhibit space with a Lumia in hand and tap the winning designs’ NFC-enabled tags are provided with more information and interactivity. That info includes further background about the product, the materials used, the product’s designers, what the judges thought about the design, and why it was a category winner.
The main visual language was established by following the theme already present in the exhibition. My aim was to grab the essential elements and define a very simple but effective look for the app.
The app also provided valuable data and insights for the Design Museum, such as learning which pieces guests engage with the most and a better understanding of overall guest satisfaction and direct feedback on the exhibit.
