Banff Centre iPhone App

One of the first iPhone apps to come out of the post-secondary arts sector in Canada.

One of the first iPhone apps to come out of the post-secondary arts sector in Canada, I was responsible for the vision and strategy, as well as contributing to the development of the Banff Centre iPhone app.

After presenting the vision for an iPhone app to the Banff Centre’s board of governors and getting approval, I put together and lead a team to design, develop, launch and support a mobile application to help with campus way-finding, promote upcoming events, and provide an experiential arts element unique to the Banff Centre Campus.

Functionality included campus maps with facility overlays and details, events listings including featured events, weather, and a unique “art walk” augmented reality game that let visitors explore and identify over 20 physical art installations located throughout the 43 acre campus. The application also featured podcast and video integration and campus security and facility contact information.
