Montage: A Collaborative Memoir Creation Tool
Montage was an exercise in visual design and web development, around an idea created with a friend.
The product allows users to compile memories about recently deceased or elderly loved ones, and to collaborate with relatives to fill in the blanks.
From there, the product taps APIs and public data to transform those memories into media rich, interactive experiences, with relevant music, images, and videos.
I built an MVP, a simple website, to test the concept and gather reactions. While this could have easily been done in prototyping software, I took the opportunity to build a website in HTML CSS and Jquery with simple animations.
The live website is available here (but is not maintained). The Desktop site works best in Safari.
