Redesigning Wikipedia for mobile & tablet

Jury Prize

My MA-project investigates the difference between the various touch-screens we use every day, and how these differences affect my role as a designer. How can I design the best possible solution for the multitude of screens which exist? The outcome of this project is a reinvention of how Wikipedia may appear on smartphones and tablets. The content remains the same, but the appearance has been adapted to the various platforms. The tablet version enhances Wikipedia’s visual content and promotes a mode which allows you to move from one article to the next, learning new things. The target audience for this version is tablet users at home, having good internet-connection and wanting a richer experience. The smartphone version is made for speed and rapid retrieval of information without spending too much time downloading. The target audience for this version is users on the move, with quick access to articles on a slow internet-connection. A major part of my project has been dedicated to simplifying both versions as much as possible, making content the key focus. Reading, for instance, is not disturbed by links or references, but can be retrieved if necessary.
