V&A Design a Wig

I produced this awesome wig designing HTML mobile & desktop game for the V&A museum with the talented chaps at Rhythm.

It seems people just can’t get enough of designing wigs. Please click here to design a wig yourself!

The site was so successful that it was picked up by various blogs, resulting in it going viral and crashing the V&A’s servers with the amount of traffic. See the various articles on it below by a number of influential websites.

Wired. The Guardian. The Huffington Post. Elle. Harper’s Bazaar. Vice – The Creator’s Project. Slate. The Smithsonian 

The idea of the game was to create an engaging mobile app for children and adults alike – helping them to learn about fashions in the 1600-1800s and to share their final designs to increase further engagement.

I managed the pitch, took the brief, worked on the user journey and design in order to sell this idea to the curatorial team. We also completed various stages of user testing to ensure the game was easy to use across mobile and desktop.

We also created two other website and in gallery interactives for the Europe 1600 – 1800 galleries based on learning about terrible trades (click here to try) and exploring the Ommegang painting (click here to try).
