Myth Explorer: Skull Island


UX, Prototyping

Myth Explorer is a web-based adventure series which follows Erin Ryder and her crew as they travel the world in search of undiscovered mysteries — the first season is dedicated to uncovering the secrets of the long-lost Skull Island. The show was created as part of Universal Orlando's promotional campaign leading up to the opening of Skull Island: Reign of Kong, their newest attraction.

First round wires, low fidelity.


After the initial sketches, I began working in-browser. This allowed us to layer in some simple functionality and demonstrate responsive layout behaviors natively. It also helped keep us honest regarding the amount of content and copy that could fit comfortably on a page.

To document specific features and describe the behaviors of individual elements, I annotated the wires using screenshots of the HTML build.

From here, the design and development teams took the reins and produced a kick-ass site.
