Memory Makes Us - Website


if:book Australia engaged Human Creative to design and develop an innovative platform in conjunction with 3 Writers Festivals (Melbourne, Brisbane, Darwin),  with 9 celebrated authors contributing. The concept was to create a website which would allow visitors to follow 3 stories simultaneously, written live by authors at the events.

Our solution utilised Google Docs ‘Live Authoring’ with a simple WordPress Content Management System that enabled the core functionality. In addition we gave visitors the ability to contribute their own ‘memories’ by submitting text, images and video as well as social media feeds. The user-generated memories and social media contributions will also feed into the Author’s live story as dynamic inspiration. The site is fully responsive ensuring visitors could follow the story and contribute from any device. The site already hosts a wealth of user-contributed memories. We look forward to the first event ‘Wordstorm’ on the 30th May.
