Introduction

Arket: Learn Your Lore is an art history app whose purpose is to connect works of art with the supplies used to create it. By browsing a specific art piece, viewers can see a list of what went into creating it. Clicking on one of these materials will bring up a page showing the cultural, economic, and regional impact as well as a list of art pieces on the app that use this material. On both art piece and material piece there is a segment for education, a way to add to a favorites list, and a way to organize the list. Future iterations of the app will include an online shop for environmentally friendly-gathered materials and an educator portal.

My personal background includes work at living history sites, the National Park Service, museums, the wide world of publishing, fine art, education, human resources, and retail. I've listened to educators literally break down crying over education software malfunctioning and a general lack of resources.

This project was assigned through Google's Coursera UX certificate program and was my first experience working in Figma. I've chosen to use this project as my "learning project", the assignment I go back to each time I learn something new in Figma or when I want to experiment with a new design concept. As a result this project may not represent real-world constraints, but I hope you are able to see the joy I took in ideating and developing this concept.
