V&A “The Emperor’s New Robes” (2011)

Interactive generative design application to accompany the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Imperial Chinese Robes from the Forbidden City exhibition and digital activities. Inspired by the beautiful designs of the robes, we created an application allowing families and visitors of all ages to easily design, create and save their own virtual robes based on material from the exhibition. Launched at the half-term drop-in week, the activity received over a thousand visitors in just the first 3 days.
