The GuardianVirtual Reality

The Project

The Guardian had several pieces of VR content with more in production but no specific housing to place them, so we teamed up with Google to launch a designated virtual reality app exclusively for their Daydream platform. I was tasked with designing a clean, coherent virtual interface for users to select from a range of experiences, learn more, download and launch.

We later decided to expand our reach with a traditional app for iPhone and Android devices. I created a sister app which mirrored the user-flow of our Daydream app, allowing a whole new set of users to engage in our immersive journalism via a cardboard headset. On launch we did a massive giveaway of headsets with our Saturday paper.
