PORTFOLIO

NECTAR CLOTHING SPRING LOOKBOOK

WEB + INTERACTIVE DESIGN, GRAPHIC DESIGN

Nectar Clothing is a family-owned chain of women's boutiques in Southern California that wanted their formerly upscale brand to highlight their affordable price point, so I put together a fun, pocket-sized lookbook that displays content about the products being modeled (like additional product images and links to buy the products in the online store) when viewed through the free Layar app for iOS and Android. View a simulation here. Use the left and right arrow keys to flip through the lookbook.

TECHNOLOGIES USED:
HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, jQuery
PROGRAMS USED:
