Hide+Seek is a beginners guide to Geocaching. This project was designed and prototyped in 2014. Initially, the goal was to design an experience for the Ipad using Adobe's Digital Publishing Suite. Ultimately, this project became my gateway into UX. Prior to the advent of tools such as Framer, Invision, and XD, I repurposed Adobe's DPS to create interactive prototypes of mobile apps.
User insights around book ownership inspired the publication. I became especially interested in exploring the idea that books take you places. Hide+Seek is an adventure guide that takes you on a real-world scavenger hunt.
The guide contains hidden messages that you uncover. The design is inspired by puzzles games, making the book a playful experience. When solved, the puzzles reveal Geocaching secrets.
Once you've completed the guide, Hide+Seek becomes a digital treasure map to get you started.
