Cross-Media Design Kit
I am currently developing a cross-media design kit, comprised of over 100 cards, a book, and website with updated examples and exercises. It is for:
Who is this book for?
What can you do with this book?
How to use this book and project
In this book, I take you through every technique you may consider when creating a cross-media project. I provide a description of the technique, reference key related readings, refer to related techniques, name examples, discuss when you may use the technique and complications.
On the website, there is a ‘transmedia design report’ where you can answer questions about your project and get an immediate free assessment of what transmedia techniques are recommended for your project. You will also find examples of projects and exercises for using the cards, updated by myself and fellow creatives and educators.
On the cards, you will find the name of each technique and an illustration. Use these with the exercises on the website, and the book if you like, to develop your own projects and analyse existing ones.
I am drawing on my previous published work on cross-media interaction design, as well as the insights I have gained over the years as a designer, researcher & educator. It is illustrated by Marigold Bartlett, who has worked with me on the Magister Ludi Game and forthcoming board game DIY SPY.
