    Project Concept
    The concept of this project is to give users of San Antonio College an aesthetic experience in dealing with campus information.
     
    Research Description
    Design wise, research was conducted to create an immersive user interface and experience. The design would marry beauty with functionality. The ultimate satisfaction from art is when you can make it interactive and functional.

    Research involved learning the Objective C, language. Although I am familiar with object oriented programming languages, Objective C see was slightly different, especially when managing memory allocation. Wanting to tie into local weather API's, I also used php.
     
    Target audience
    Target audience includes college students attending San Antonio College.
