This iPhone app came to life from a collaboration between Scout London, Christian Lewcock and renowned historian Richard Jones. I was in charge of all designs and UX, and worked very closely with Christian to produce this app in a matter of days.
The app takes you on a tour round Dickensian London, highlighting landmarks and points of interest along the way (as well as a few carefully chosen pubs and cafes too of course, in case you need ye olde refreshment).
It features a skinned Google map, and the visual language of aging paper and literature. A cross between a guided tour and a treasure hunt, the app and the walk come highly recommended…
Love it so much. Me and my friend had a really nice day walking around and following the map on the app.
PS: iPhone users can take a look here (as you can always explore the app without being on location).
