Summary: The Minnesota Historical Society (MHS) needed to develop a robust online presence for its 3D Fort Snelling Project to provide an innovative way to showcase digital history by integrating three distinct, but interrelated components: historically accurate virtual 3D models, a collections database, and a data visualization tool. With that goal in mind, Night Kitchen teamed up with key stakeholders from MHS and the Virginia Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH) in a collaborative process to establish a Technical and Creative Project Plan that would be used to guide the design and development of the website.
It’s an exciting project to bring to the world, the on-site living history program of Fort Snelling, by building an interactive content-rich, collections-based website, and identifying innovative ways to engage visitors of all ages in Fort Snelling’s rich history. My main contribution to the Project Plan was through the creation of high-fidelity wireframes for client approval and UX by-in and with the creation of the preliminary visual creative treatments.
