The target audience doesn’t necessarily range by age group but by reason of visiting such as education and general interest.


We started with Melbourne CBD map to be our guided line for CrissCross mapping structure. Then, we analysed the 43 innovative iconic products design that were designed in Melbourne to place them on the map based on CrissCross Era. Through the discovery of multiple eras, we carefully assigned a color legend to represent the designated era according to history through colors. This has brought up the legendary Time-line concept as we connected all items according to dates, colors, and innovations.
The mind map shows the brief working structure team concept and how we combined our thoughts together to bring CrissCross design project alive.
Concept Planning, Visual Identity and Touchscreen Design and Development were done in collaboration with my dear classmate, friend and amazing designer Read Y. Albanna.

The whole CrissCross project comes alive on various devices thanks to the team.
