The purpose of the site is to showcase various objects that are collected by elderly people in retirement homes. Each object has a special story to tell, which is explored in workshops around the country.
Objects can be viewed from different angles, zoomed into, shared and commented on. Ease of use and accessibility were very important aspects of this project and the site is fully responsive. It has been designed to work effectively on desktop, tablets, mobile devices and projectors. Add to this, there are additional options that enable the user to increase the text and image sizes across the site.
This site has quite a few subtle features, for example each item is assigned tags for easy searching. One item might be tagged "WW2" and if the user clicks on that tag, all of the items from the World War Two era would be in view. Another feature we really like is the pinch and zoom controls for touch devices. With this, each image can be zoomed into revealing more detail.
Well done and thanks, it looks great!
