This project explores life within the honeybee hive, and aims to raise awareness of their importance to our way of life. The finished book combines print design with augmented reality (written in AS3), adding video and 3D models to create a more immersive learning experience.
A research document forming the starting point for Hive, looking into the dynamic between print and digital media. This has been explored through the use of augmented reality, using printed markers to enhance the tactile experience of reading a book.
The project was split into 3 separate books, Research (highlighting relevant projects and ideas), Experiments (assigning video and 3D elements to printed markers), and Proposal. This was done to allow the reader to navigate through the information in a fluid path, much like links on a website.
An identity created for a day festival that celebrates the Media, Art and Design courses at Westminster University.
The key theme of this project was to show the uniting of courses that usually operate individually from each other. To do this a graphic was designed as a response to the shape of a rope, symbolising the twisting together of separate strands of the University.
A logo, programme, signage, and set of posters were designed for the event.
