GQ Vertical Gallery

Designs for a new vertical gallery template to be used on (still in development).

The existing galleries were developed with a desktop user in mind. This included the outdated approach of a left to right slideshow, with page reloads upon each new slide.

Given that a majority of users were accessing the site via phone, it made sense to optimise the gallery experience for this. This included creating a single page, with traditional vertical scrolling, that allowed greater ease of use for mobile users.



A quick prototype was mocked up in Keynote to model interactions and animations for the project stakeholders.

After developing the mobile version of the gallery, a design was created to cater to larger screen sizes.
