IPAD APP: 1 Hour in MoMA

IPAD APP: 1 Hour in MoMA
Project
1 Hour in MoMA

Execution
I decided to make an app which allows the user to get the most out of one hour at the MoMA. It showcases the most visited pieces, based on information gathered by the museum, and allows the user to explore the piece in-depth by giving histories, videos and other information about the pieces and artists or allows them to chose to move on to the next piece. Icons allow the user to easily check the time they have left, what piece they are on and their location in the museum.
