PROJECTS

THE HERBERGER EXPERIENCE

Digital Culture Capstone Project

Spring 2018 semester | Arizona State University

The Herberger Experience app offers a new way to take a campus tour at ASU Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts with an Augmented Reality experience.

Problem: The way people take campus tour has never been changed at all. Although there’s abundant information on the Internet, there’s no interaction between browsing webpage to get information and walking through the campus, the buildings, and the facilities. Students need a convenient and interactive way to get to know and access all the resources on campus.

Solution: There are some AR markers inside the building, which are basically taped next to the facilities and faculty offices. The user can use their smartphone or tablet to scan the QR code inside the AR marker, which will direct the user to a webpage with a camera view. Continue scanning the AR marker, and the user will see the information about that place on the screen with a stunning visualization, contains images and texts inside several 3D objects. Annie and I designed the interface of this AR visualization.

Besides the AR functionality, I also designed the brand, posters, designed and created the official site of the Herberger Experience with Annie.
