Map Concept 1

13 DECScreen Shot 2016-12-13 at 1.24.41 PMBased off the above image we will create a concept map of Wellingtons Water Front for the Literary Atlas. It will be stylized like the feature image and use the same colours and bold black outlines.

The following typefaces have been selected to be used.Screen Shot 2016-12-13 at 1.52.30 PM

Here is the rough mock up of the Map in Illustrator. More work will be done on this tomorrow.Screen Shot 2016-12-16 at 2.32.37 PM

  • Icons for specific points of interest will be made (right now these are small burgundy circles)
  • A swatch for the buildings will be written for finer lines (the current blinds pattern is a placeholder)
  • I want to fill all the water with text ( as an abstract design choice)
  • Names of parks will have to be sourced
  • Find out all the boat names around the waterfront
  • User relevant points of interest?

Here is the mock up that has been completed thus far:

I Have made a Building Pattern Swatch, however I need to adjust the legibility of the text within the buildings. I like the style of the water with the changing size of text however I think I should make the overall size of the text smaller. I am really happy with the colours of the map.

I am conscious that the map appears too busy. I might complete the basis of the map in its entirety, then develop the style. We need this map to  serve its purpose as a functional map as well as having a literary style.

Still to do:

  • Icons for specific points of interest will be made (right now these are small burgundy circles)
  • Find out all the boat names around the waterfront
  • User relevant points of interest?

Final Mock up completed! The full map can been seen below.

Map Mock Up

Text will need to be added next to further develop this map. The building swatches were adjusted also to make the building text more legible but the outline of the buildings was increased to make them stand out.

From this point on:

  • Text needs to be added
  • Icons needed for landmarks
  • Bridges need to be added

All things considered the map is really coming together

Precedent – Wallame

What is it

WallaMe is a free iOS and Android app that allows users to hide and share messages in the real world using augmented reality.

Users can take a picture of a surface around them and write, draw and add stickers and photos on them. Once the message (called Wall) is completed, it will be geolocalized and will remain visible through WallaMe’s AR viewer by everyone passing by. A Wall can also be made private, thus becoming visible only to specific people.

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_ceAll the Walls created worldwide can be seen in a feed similar to those of social networks like Facebook and Instagram, and can be liked, commented on, and shared outside the app.

WallaMe is mostly used to create digital graffiti and for proximity messaging.

How it works

Wallame allows you to create your own markers based o photos and map AR instances to them.

Content can be in the form of;

  • Images
  • Doodles(drawn using the app)
  • Text

An example video is below

What will we use 

The ability to have a user created content is exciting as users could leave their own messages/ marks on the overall experience.

Other interactions such as the ability to doodle/ place content in space could be very powerful.

One limitation is that the app can only see one AR instance at a time, which is chosen by the user.
