18th Biennale of Sydney: Cockatoo Island is a geo-location based application designed and developed for the BlackBerry PlayBook.
When BlackBerry PlayBook just came out, we thought we'd give it a try so we developed this app for people to experience Cockatoo Island in a better and less traditional way. There existed a potential opportunity to create something site specific that not only gave the user the necessary gallery style information contained in the printed booklet, but also enhanced and supported the island’s special qualities as a post-industrial centre for art and culture.
It's also interesting that, we started manipulating the translucency and flat design techniques before Sir Jonathan Ive triggered this trend when he announced the redesigned iOS 7 :)
