ELH 309 - Creating Interactive Passenger Safety Cards
Jan 09, 2021
This week's challenge was create an interactive airplane passenger safety card.
I used the 2021 Pantone COTY pallet for my interaction.
After searching for graphics on several airline sites, I found some I liked on Air New Zealand and used a snipping tool to make them my own.
I designed my intro page with a plane from the 360 Content Library and picked a fun font.
I created the look and feel for my demo page then created layers for each part of the story.
Some text was too long, so I added scrolling panels then animated the panels to scroll on their own.
I added a slider to select the various layers in order.
I added text to speech on each layer and chose an Australian Female as my voice over artist.
Note: I just added some accessibility features. Layers can now be selected using the numbers 1-7, and a button on the bottom of the screen allows toggling the text box text from normal colors to black on a white background.
With the basics outlined I wanted to spice it up so I went searching for background music. I found a track called "Hero 911" and added to the opening page. Liking it, I added it to the slider control page but lowered the volume way down.
I then added a button to the page but hid it so that it would only show up when my slider got to the far right end. Click the button takes you to a credits page. I repeated the font from the opening page as well as the airplane graphic. And just for fun, I turned up the music again.
