Project:
Curious Collector Mobile App

Responsibility:
Mobile App Design & Development

 

The Curious Collector mobile app was developed to highlight the weird, strange, wonderful, and sometimes frankly odd objects and artworks Hull Museums have in their collections. Taking in Hull Maritime Museum, Ferens Art Gallery, Hull and East Riding Museum, Streetlife Museum, Wilberforce House, Hull History Centre and Burton Constable Hall, the Curious Collector app helps you hunt out and collect artefacts via your mobile phone.

We built the app to be as user friendly as possible, as it would be used by children a well as adults. All the objects can be searched for by venue or via an interactive map. Once you have found your curiosity you can scan the associated QR Code with the apps built in scanner. This will mark the object as collected within the app. You can also add favourite object to you very own cabinet of curiosities.

The app is available for Apple and Android.
