NEAR HERE — immersive news app


Near Here is a site-specific audio news app that combines geolocation and mindfulness exercises to disrupt the way audio news stories are told and experienced. The project was done in collaboration with Future Projects Media, a full-spectrum production company with a focus on audio; and developed with an immersive journalism grant from the Online News Association’s Journalism 360 Challenge as a way to use immersive storytelling to advance journalism. 

I worked as the sole product designer — taking the existing grant-winning proposal and turning it into a user-tested prototype as a proof of concept.
