Sharing in Growth
Having recently completed the design and build of the SiG Learning Platform, as part of a world-class training programme for our Client; The Immersive Learning Studio were engaged to create a series of content to be housed within the Teaching Points area of this Learning Platform.
Initially, we were presented with a graphic/poster displaying one of the key manufacturing environments; the Lighthouse Cell. Our Design team were tasked with the digital replication of this detailed environment, as a single still image. The aim of the graphic was to help employees familiarise themselves with the various workstations and the individual processes before entering the Cell.
After brainstorming our initial thoughts, we came up with the idea to evolve this visual into a more interactive environment, that would allow the user to explore and navigate around the Cell, exploring various hotspots.
With so much information behind each workstation, and a wide range of technical equipment and industry terms to get to grips with, a single image could risk becoming overcrowded with information.
Integrating a range of interactive hotspots enabled more detailed content to be contained neatly within the relevant areas of the environment, allowing the user to browse and navigate through the various elements at their own pace, whilst easily accessing and digesting information.
Incorporating on-brand themes in our design detail, such as company colours, SiG uniforms, and branded equipment, helped us to achieve a high level of accuracy in our replication. Not being within the real-life environment proved challenging at times, however, working closely with the Client and regularly referring to photography and brand guidelines helped us to mirror the Cell as closely as possible.
As a result of the success of the interactive image, we are now working with SiG to evolve the environment again, into a Virtual Reality experience that will allow users to immerse themselves into the environment – experiencing a 360 view through a VR headset.
