DEKO: Spring Fling Smart Phone App Case Study1st October 2012
DEKO Spring Fling Case Study
Design & Development Android & iPhone Platform / Push Notifications Enabled / Social Networks Integration
Spring Fling has just introduced a new Smart Phone App to help visitors enjoy the best possible experience of the event. 76 superbly talented artists and craft makers living and working in the beautiful Scottish region will be opening their studios to the public, showing off their work and talking to visitors about the inspiration behind it.
Our brief was to support Spring Fling by making searching for studios in the region easy and personalised according to personal preferences and types of creative media. So if visitors have a specific interest in, say glass-making, they can easily see which studios they will be most interested in visiting. Or, if they are just visiting one particular area of the region on one of the Spring Fling days, they can check out what studios and workshops are nearest for them to drop in on. The App is all about making Spring Fling as accessible as possible – and as enjoyable as possible.
Visitors will get a chance to meet outstanding painters, potters, photographers, textile designers, glass and ceramic makers and jewellers. All of them had to go through a rigorous selection process to participate in Spring Fling 2012 and the new free App ensures that planning tours around their studios and workshops is not only simple but can be tailored to personal tastes.
“Our new Smart Phone App is designed to help visitors enjoy Spring Fling to the max by making it straightforward and fun to plan individualised tours around the studios and workshops of the hugely talented artists and craft makers taking part in the event. People can choose their route in different
ways – including by type of art and craft or by location.”
