interaction design & big data visualization

digital public library of America 

DPLA integrates thousands of data sources into a platform allowing users to generate their own app-like search/browse experiences. iFactory’s mission was to create interaction design based on user personas and use cases that went beyond simple text-based search and browse. We iteratively wire-framed the proposed interaction, architected functionality and executed a responsive visual design. The result is a site with a variety of engaging access paths, including exhibit, timeline and map interfaces. DPLA as been critically acclaimed and has been named one of Time Magazine’s Top 50 websites of 2013.
