This three-week project explored micro-gestures - in this case the swipe. Working with a Unity developer, Ole-Birger Neergård and I designed this relaxing digital experience around a rowing gesture.
The 8-bit style let us play around with a distinctive graphic style, and imposed a set of creative constraints on our sketches and animations.
Ole-Birger suggested the idea of working music and sounds into our interactions. We put together a tropical soundtrack and collider-triggered bird and whale noises to complete the island theme.
We used paper prototyping and GIF animations to explore interactions and communicate our intentions to the developer.
