PATHS: TRANSMEDIA PROJECT
For my MFA thesis I wanted to look at the overlap between design and storytelling. In developing the project I created a simple story world, which I used to develop content over multiple media outlets using a transmedia approach. In transmedia, each platform should be delivering unique story content. With this in mind I explored design’s role in telling each story in the most effective way possible, making a point to utilize the benefits of each platform to deliver the content. The final output included a video game, a board game, and a magazine, as well as two supplemental generative pieces.
This project was developed with the guidance of Ellen Lupton, Jennifer Cole Phillips, Jason Gottlieb, Lindsay Ballant and Kiel Mutschelknaus as part of the GDMFA thesis at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
