Blue Telescope developed the Hero, Villain, Yeti! microsite to provide interactive games and resources to visitors at the Rubin Museum of Art’s exhibit on comics and the Himalayas.
Designed specifically to be used on-site using QR codes and mobile phones, the site incorporates event listings, a blog, and several games and activities. Visitors can compete in a comic caption contest, learn about iconography in Himalayan art, or take a colorful personality test to identify themselves as “Hero,” “Villain,” or “Yeti,” and share their results via Facebook integration.
The site was developed using a customized CMS system so museum staff can easily update content through a web-based interface. Using HTML5 and responsive design standards, the site adapts its layout instantly to any mobile or desktop device for optimal user experience.
