ENGLISH HERITAGE

An interactive map of myths and legends

UX, UI, Design, Animation

 

I worked with English Heritage and the artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins on an interactive illustrated Map of English Myths and Legends

Working simultaneously with the illustrator and the development team I put wireframes together, designed the user interface, artworked map elements and brought Clive's illustrations to life through animation.

It was particularly interesting preserving the analogue style of Clive’s artwork in a digital production, but this is the balance that ultimately makes the map so special. We also had to bear in mind that the map had to be compatible across a variety of desktop and mobile devices.

Clive provided me with maquette illustrations which I cut out and pieced back together to bring the creatures and characters to life. I bridged the gap to the technical team, creating mythical animations and passing them on as animated json files to be animated using Lottie.
