Paper Prototyping

Before building the experience digitally, we paper playtested different fields of space based on our goals for the experience to learn what worked best.

We also playtested the shapes and sizes of the particles for the experience.  We learned that guests wanted more autonomy over the objects which resulted in the first two phases of the experience where guests sculpt and scale their object.

Drawing Interactions

Playtest results from participants who were prompted to "draw" in the space.

Transition Animation Tests

To make our experience more cohesive, I created simple animations of transitions that we could use when switching between phases of the experience.
