Our capital solution
We took the City of Helsinki style guide and ran with it, creating three different experiences in collaboration with Sherpa:
A fun quiz, Helsinki Test, where people could discover which Helsinki district they are
A social media wall to gather content posted with the #unelmienkaupunki hashtag
An audio-visual 3D map of Helsinki and its districts
We created a beautiful look and feel for the Helsinki Test using modern CSS animations, and used React for the quiz itself. The great thing about this was that we didn’t need to worry about multiple browsers and resolutions as the quiz was implemented for iPad only.
For the social media wall we benchmarked solutions that were already available so we could get things up and running fast. We chose wall.io because it gave us the flexibility to create exactly the look and feel we wanted. Why start from scratch and waste time and money when someone’s already created something that fits the bill perfectly?
Developing the 3D map was particularly exciting for us as we got our first chance to use the Unity engine.
