Designing a walk through Rijksmuseum's virtual Gallery of Honor

Enjoy the masterpieces of the Rijksmuseum from your own home. In collaboration with the Rijksmuseum, Q42 and I designed at Fabrique a virtual walk through the Gallery of Honour. Get immersed in the narrated video tours or get close with all the tiny details of the masterpieces by standing in front of them.

Amex GBT wanted to rethink the way customer experiences their services and how they interact with Amex during their journeys and the booking process. They asked Livework to design three concepts that could aid their strategy for servicing their clients in the future, based on gathered insights.

The story

During some months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rijksmuseum had to close to the public, leaving the masterpieces unadmired. The Rijksmuseum was looking for a way to bring people close to the art again.

The challenge

Bring visitors back to the masterpieces in our closed Gallery of Honour.

My role

I sketched out the flows of visiting a virtual Gallery of Honour, and designed the interface that would give users free freedom to walk around, but also allowed for quick navigation to different sections. 


The approach

Most 360 navigation is challenging and slow to use, especially on mobile. I approached it as a site, including back buttons to the 'home', and adding arrows as a quick way of scrolling over the 'homepage' (big hall). Users have you freedom to either examine all the works, or jump around for inspiration with new 360 navigation patterns.

All important interactions are placed close to your thumb. That's why closing crosses are not on top, but on the bottom of overlay panels.
