Diarmuid O'Connor

Limerick City Gallery of Art

An eclectic gathering of over 2,500 international posters, The Michael O’Connor Collection in LCGA is a must see for art and design enthusiasts, however due to shortages in exhibition space and storage facilities, this extraordinary collection remains hidden from view.
An app was created to give the public access to the collection while also preserving it for the future. Taking a stripped back approach, the app's design lets the posters take centre stage.
Buttons and rule lines are kept visually light, text appears only where strictly necessary, and fades once past the viewer’s focus. A blur screen allows each poster to function as a coloured background while users browse its information. The homepage features 360° scrolling, replicating the spontaneity of the physical gallery, while the browse section offers a structured viewing experience.
