UI design

Here are examples of work I did while employed at Gagarin. I co-designed the interfaces, did illustrations and worked on the stories for these exhibits.

One of many storyboards made for the project (mock-content for design purposes only).

Storyboard sketches from the Project


The property outlines of several houses that were lost under the ash are projected onto a large sandbox. With the aid of small shovels, visitors are invited to dig into the sand. This action alludes to a search for lost memories. As visitors dig deeper, an illustration of the house will emerge. If they continue this will be followed by a photo from the original house owner.

When the user reaches the sand there is a map projected on it.

After digging a bit there are drawings of houses and their names.

The user keeps digging up information about the houses that went under.

When you reach the bottom the projected drawings change to photos.
