The experience attracts visitors with full-canvas motion graphics, and detects their presence through overhead depth cameras. Approaching users are presented with a touchscreen interface that offers them an opportunity to explore 175 historical events and destinations through archival imagery, maps, and text.

Rare Volume created the design system using five elements: Photography, Type, Color, Textures, and Objects. For a look and feel as vibrant as the city itself, we drew inspiration from NOLA’s rich history in the arts, culture, and architecture.
