Designed at The New York Times. Locations: Times Square Visitor's Center & Starbucks flagship store in Times Square
In 2009 I researched technology and developed a concept for a large touch wall experience for the NYTimes that would be installed in high traffic areas in New York City. I showed the concept to VP's throughout the Times, but the concept was too cost-prohibitive.
Later that year, Times Square Alliance asked us to help them tell the history of Times Square in their new "Times Square Story" Visitor's Center. Borrowing from my research, I found a cost-saving solution and designed a simple UI for a 42" HP TouchSmart display that takes the user through 160 years of Times Square through the lens of The New York Times. The project was done on a shoestring budget and donated to TSA by the Marketing Department.
The touch screen caught the eye of the Starbucks Digital Team, which placed a duplicate version in their flagship store in Times Square. Other versions were rolled out throughout 2011: History of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week @ Spring Fashion Week 2011; NYTimes Store 50 Photos Collection e-commerce screen @ Bloomingdale's, New York; Portraits of Grief Touch Screen @ NYTimes 9/11 Exhibit
