Update #3 — Super News! Explode — The Writer’s Environment is a Spring 2017 Experiential Network (XN) Project Sponsor — for Northeastern University!

We have the solution, information architecture, documentation, literature, and wireframe design for Explode – The Writer’s Environment! Like Da Vinci’s sfumato – you can’t see it, but you know something’s back there!

The information architecture is flat, the wireframe is behind a VR scene/mechanism that looks non-logical for locating functions — but still has consistency for navigating users. Yinquin Jaing “Selina’s” design accommodates content – not just Explode’s content — any content.

To bring the project to fruition — Ms. Jaing and Northeastern University have agreed to a seamless hand-off of this milestone to the Northeastern University’s Experiential Network’s Spring Term 2017 — for ideally — two students:

  • One Computer Science Student (PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript)
  • One Game Development Student (make videos interactive)

Selina designed an unprecedented prototype for content delivery.  To share the documentation – and absolute vision at this juncture would be premature — when we are striving for an immersive dynamic environment, with a game development engine, and a Storyboard to make the website rich and interactive on Go Live.  This project is pushed back to the summer of 2017.

Thanks for hanging in here with us!  Stand by for updates.
