1. Companion App — City Stories
Joao Gil for Canon Companion / 2018
For iOS and Android
Photograph, travel — learn.
City stories is a feature that allows users to tour cities around the world, and photograph them in a way never experienced before with insights and tutorials from professional photographers.
This project looked at redesigning this feature, highlighting the Map has a primary guide to find interest points nearby. Pins on the map indicate locations of interest and by tapping on them a sheet is surfaced with more information about the location. Users can then intiutively drag the sheet upwards, expanding the tutorial page - allowing seamless swap between the tutorial and the map view.
This feature was much requested and beloved from our users, since it allows new ways to explore cities at different times to take photographs with different angles, compositions and light - while allowing the users to visit interest points around the world.
These improvements aim to facilitate the way a user navigates between using the map and reading the tutorial article.
