We have also had confirmation back from MCC that our App will be exhibited in the Manchester Central Library Performance Space this Friday, which is great news for the team.

Our daily mid-day progress meeting with the whole group went well today. We came to a mutual decision on the design principles that should be followed by the group and game content for our App.

Our students have made excellent progress today with the development of the App and getting their heads around using Adobe XD. Here is one example of the many XD files the students have produced to date. We are now all very excited about what our final output will be.

Successful afternoon’s work with our students today, during which, in small groups they came up with a number of different options for an App logo. The students were then asked to decide upon a concept and to graphically develop it further, ready for tomorrow mornings vote.

Another one of our students ideas was focused around creating an app that would help engage young people with the town hall by highlighting the locations of where various blockbuster films and TV shows were filmed within the Town Hall. Here are a few more of their prototype designs for the app.

Brilliant work by @TalkingStatuesManchester who have found an ingenious way of engaging young people with historical statues dotted around the city. By simply swiping your smartphone, via an app, you can participate in a cultural encounter with a statue, enabling you to find out more about its story and history.

Thoroughly enjoyed our Free Manchester Walking Tour this weekend - a special thanks to our fantastic tour guide Josh Martin @FreeTours_MCR for teaching us loads about pre and post-industrial Manchester including a little extra about the town hall’s history. If you’re new to Manchester this is a great way to get to know a little about the city you are studying in!
