At Ogilvy & Mather, I collaborated with the creative team to design and develop a tablet experience to support the University of Chicago's bid to land the Obama Presidential Library. The primary piece of this project was a large bound book containing research, site designs from multiple architectural agencies, interviews with residents living near each of the proposed sites, and extensive photography of neighborhoods around Chicago's south side.
To play off President Obama being known as the first "digital president," we created a tablet application that would sit in a custom-designed tray in the back of the book, to be used by the president and the selection committee to browse digital versions of the material in the book, including video interviews.
The project required extensive exploration of technology constraints, and found us attempting to solve a range of issues such as keeping the device in kiosk mode at all times (to literally ensure the Obamas' children wouldn't run off with it or treat it like a normal iPad), and ensuring it would arrive fully charged, with backup batteries available.
It was a truly unique project that more than a year later certainly played a part in the university - and the city of Chicago - winning the library bid. It was perhaps the most narrow audience I've encountered for any project, but definitely fun to realize the president of the United States would be using something we created.
