Interactive Short Story
WEB DESIGN, illustration, interaction design
Our brief for this school web design project was to take a short story from McSweeney's and create an interactive and responsive website. My short story was titled A Post Gender Normative Man Tries to Pick up a Woman at a Bar, and was structured as a monologue of a man trying to talk to a woman.
A "pick your path" quiz version where the user chooses how the story ends. The story structure itself is a humorous monologue, where a man is tries to “respectfully” hit on a woman. As the monologue is only him speaking, I realized there was an opportunity to write content of the woman’s replies, allowing the user to choose their own response and directly interact with the story.
