Introduction to IXD304/Narrative & Storytelling

Lecture notes

The Brief

For this module we are being asked to create a website or digital publication/advanced E-book and an immersive prototype. The topic we will be basing this around is Heroes and Villains, to be more specific, we are focusing on characters from Arthur Conan Doyles books based on Sherlock Holmes. Whether I decide to go in the direction of a website or a Digital Publication, I will be styling the content around Sherlock Holmes, using strongly chosen typography and colour scheme to enhance the content. On my website, digital publication I may also use Statistics, Sounds, Video, Google Maps, Ar and Vr.
