[integral archives : summer17] -- yachty's world app for lil yachty (unreleased)⠀
yachty's world was an unreleased interactive iOS app world built to support lil yachty's album "Teenage Emotions" -- i developed the app with direction from the dream team -- creative direction / world design / visual design by mihailoandic, 3d assets from smeccea, and ui design by johnnyreazn. ⠀
the vision was to create lil yachty's dynamic world as a place for fans to live in -- with new content premiering on the app first, alongside new realtime+time-windowed experiences, such as pop up merch sales only available via the app for a limited time, access to exclusive pre-release content, and anything else we could think of. the idea was to enable new kinds of exclusive experiences using the capabilities of an app — only rolling out certain content to certain fans, having content experience portals in app for super short amounts of time — the app was wired up to a realtime database that controlled what was displayed within the world, letting us introduce new scene images and experiences into the world at any time. there was also a day/night cycle, changing the scenery every day and night.⠀
mihailoandic designed the whole world and everything in it, which was programmed into the app and made interactive. johnnyreazn came in with the scene design for each feature, a full 2d animated experience. smeccea went in on the 3d visuals + the 3d jukebox, a full on music visualizer. ⠀
my favorite feature was the INFINITE YEARBOOK, an interactive yearbook with infinite pages for anyone in the app to draw on and sign. anything drawn would live in the yearbook forever, creating an unprecedented canvas for fans to directly leave behind their own mark for the fanbase (and yachty) to see and respond to. i definitely remade the entire snapchat camera feature for the app - filters, stickers, frames, all of it, built right into a dope photobooth feature. unfortunately the app never came out, but the literal world building & experience conceptualizations taught us new ideas on how we approach artist storytelling with digital 🛰 probably just a matter of time until the idea comes back 🤷🏽♂️
