Reverb is an online platform where Emily Carr University students could reflect, discern and connect art works by critiquing. It is a place to reach, review and reflect on art and design to extend the culture of critique.

PROBLEM

In Emily Carr University of art and design, critique is a crucial culture that students and faculties share in order to improve each other’s work. However, students are limited by university credit rules which are organized by time. Therefore, each student will only have approximately 9 minutes of feedback per class. Sine students lack time and feedbacks Emily Carr students will need a place to extend the culture of critique.

BACKGROUND

In order to extend the culture of critique in art and design, I have purposed an idea to “talk out side of the box”. Simply to create an online platform where students can extend critiques beyond classes. Through user-centered focus approach, the project introduces Emily Carr students and faculties to a different experience of and culture of critique.

USER FLOW DEVELOPMENT

Based on the user testing results, I have developed wireframes of how users will flow through the platform. Results from the user test brought vast changes. The wireframe was developed through a lens of a mobile application. However, the finalized platform is in a web form.
