The Frick Collection, one of the premier international museums for Old Master paintings and classical European arts and sculpture, was our client for this assignment. Our mission? To design a digital "lightbox" feature to help users compare images through the following capabilities:
- bring images from multiple sources onto one screen (the lightbox)
- allow the user to overlay works of art in the lightbox
- make annotations to images
- zooming capabilities for comparison's sake
- ability to export images/information
- ability to invite others to collaborate
- have metadata for the image pop up next to it when scrolled over
- have a public, searchable archive
Based on rounds of user testing through interviews and prototypes (both paper and interactive), we created a Hi-Fi interactive prototype on Axure. You can check the link out here. Screenshots are below.
Our presentation booklet, created for the client, includes an in-depth description of our market research, persona info, user testing, unique features, and annotated wireframes. You can delve into that here. Enjoy - it makes for fascinating bedtime reading!
Props to the best group to collaborate with for this project - Team Lightbox Experts: Jan Vi and Nikki Zeichner.
