problem

With the Korean wave, foreigners are more interested in the pop culture than the rich history of the Nation, so the museum has to actively engage with their audience to create an experience that is both engaging for tourists and the locals.

solution

Creating a bilingual exhibition book based on their permanent exhibition Footprints of Hangeul and creating an executive app that utilizes measuring and preparing for their temporary exhibitions.

Executive App Ideation

Because of the importance of bringing updated and alternating content, the National Hangeul Museum has a temporary exhibition that they switch out quite often. With interviews, I determined that the biggest problem workers face with exhibitions is measuring artwork.

Executive App Function

After extensive research I found that it was possible to use the sensors in your phone to detect the degree of tilt a person’s phone is at. This meant it was possible through using geometry to calculate the height and width of an object if there is a reference point for the program to add as a factor. The app uses the height of a lense as a reference point to find a close approximation for the dimensions of an object.

Usertested Prototypes

With user testing these prototypes, I was able to determine that people were being overwhelmed with the amount of screens it would take to get through the measuring process. By bringing the instructions into the capture image screens, the app was simplified and made easier to use.
