The Brief

Contracted by Proun Design LLC, working under Amaze Design, I was asked to create a 3D model of the proposed design. Using Proun's graphic designs and architectural drawings provided by the American Writer's museum, I crafted a full-scale Sketchup model. From there, I helped design the photographic mosaic using a specialty software to make a 10' portrait out of smaller portraits of Federick Douglass.

I was then asked to design the iPad interactive from the proposed design. Using Adobe Experience Design (XD), I crafted screen mockups including notes for the developers at Trivium Interactive. I also completed the motion graphic opening screen for the project using a map of locations Frederick Douglass was once photographed in.
