Tate commissioned myself and Daniel Carey to create their latest iOS app, William Blake’s London.
The app gives users an overview of Blake’s life, his works, and his influence over contemporary art and music. Content is organised into curated collections which users unlock when they arrive at locations significant to Blake’s life and works. Each collection contains high resolution images of artworks, video guides, and audio soundtracks. Featured artists include Francis Bacon and Beth Orton.
The app delivers Tate’s extensive collection of Blake’s work to a new audience, both at the gallery itself and in the wider community. We used Google’s 3D mapping system rather than the default Apple Maps, to provide extra functionality and accuracy. We also developed a secure backend system allowing Tate to add, remove, and edit content whenever required.
