Some more mockuuuups
So, the last few days have been dedicated to the actual content of the app. I’ve put together a document containing all the historical content I think would work for this app.
From the start, Ive wanted this app to be more focused on the locations and the photography, so I don’t want something that is too text heavy.
I thought, seeing as 2016 is going to be the 100 year anniversary, it’d be cool to do a ‘past/present’ type layout. I think this will work very well for the content, as many of the locations involved in the Rising have since changed. Many building were left damaged or completely destroyed with new ones having been rebuilt since.
Each location will contain a sub-header bar which will navigate the user to 1916 and 2016 sections. The user, will land on the 1916 section, where they will find information about the particular location. This will include, the address of the building, when it was constructed, its purpose, who was located there during the Rising, and any signifiant events. The 2016 section, will contain any information regarding the aftermath of the Rising, in relation to the possible reconstructions at the location, and what that building’s purpose might be today.
Here are some mockups to give you a better insight to my proposed page layout:
The JQuery Mobile UI Framework allows for simple construction of a page like this, using the data-role=”navbar” attribute. I can then work on adding in the content for each section.
