ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Georgia Historical Markets app and website is a prototype which I created for one of my Emerging Media classes. I got the idea while driving home from Nashville visiting my Brother. I saw a ton of the historical markers on my drive and it sparked my curiosity about how to bring physical signs into the digital world. Especially for people traveling as they are almost always near a road where it’s impossible to stop and read the sign. That’s where the Georgia Historical Markers app was born. It took ideas from existing apps and expanded upon them with user submitted photos, location history and the ability to search for nearby landmarks if you want to make a day of historical exploration.
I got to flex my skills in design, branding, research, marketing strategy, business plans, and web design through this project.
