“Shining light on unique places still open and safe to visit during lockdown”
What it is about
Our project is a personally curated interactive illustrated map of unique places to go & things to do across Munich during times of lockdown, that we hope is pleasing to look at, fun to navigate, and enjoyable to read through. We arrived in a time where movement was quite restricted, we thought residents of Munich, both new arrivals like ourselves and long-time locals, could benefit from discovering new things to do, so we made it our mission to shine light on unique low risk places people can go regardless of lockdown level.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Our most obvious challenge was the constantly changing lockdown rules which narrowed down the locations we could include, more notable however was that this project was a first for us; none of us coming from strictly programming or design backgrounds.
What we're proud of
Despite all of our struggles we implemented everything we intended to in our initial outlines for the project. All our code works as intended & design-wise we achieved readability & coherence despite a relatively complex array of features.
What we learned
In the future we intend to tweak the game function so that each button includes an array of places. Aesthetically we intend to simplify the base map as some of the detail is unnecessary and a bit noisy, we also need to Implement mobile support, and some of the earlier made generic placeholder icons will be replaced with unique icons.
