Since the completion of our first three stories, we have continued working on another storytelling website for the State Library of NSW.
Read a description of the story below, or check it out on the Library's website here:
Voyages of Discovery takes visitors on an interactive search for Terra Australia Incognita – the unknown southern land. Exploring the State Library's incredible maps, journals, drawings and books, this story explains how the European discoveries of Australia were gradually pieced together.
Our latest story Voyages of Discovery was created using an AngularJS framework and an integrated Drupal backend provided by the Library. This responsive scroll-down web app provides visitors with a new and exciting way to understand one of the Library’s greatest collections.
The site is interspersed with large-tiled images, animations, videos, maps, interactive nodes and flip-books. With the help of the Library's curatorial team, Lightwell handled the copy, curated the content and coded each story to create a self-contained storytelling experience.
Stage 1 has just been released, with additional chapters coming in the next few months.
With thanks to the State Library of NSW.
