Game of Thrones: Character Map [UX Designer · Project Manager]
My first project in Janet Murray's eTV lab managed a team of eight people and worked as a UX designed on the character map for the HBO show Game of Thrones.
Game of Thrones extremely complex narrative in terms of character relationships can easily disorient many viewers. Through the careful use of space, relevant iconography, and appropriate filters, the character map succinctly described the complex character relationships on the show, communicated the emotions of the scene, and brought the viewer deeper into the shows narrative.
My responsibilities as project manager for the Game of Thrones second screen app included coordinating the communications between the two teams working on the app, managing the apps assets, ensuring we hit scheduled milestones, and keeping Dr. Murray up to date with the apps development.
