This look. This body. This mentality. This experience.

This house. This view. This name. This family. This love. This life.

Everything we hold so dear will all be gone after we die.

The brutal truth is: We cannot live forever.

But maybe now, our memories can be passed along.

Just like cavemen leaving painting on the wall.

The only difference is we are using digital ink.

“ In this practical dream:

life goes on after we die.”

 

Intro

This is a personal project about digital legacy. The image about deaths are always graveyards, funerals, and all these gloomy things, regardless of who that person is. The things they left are all just these cold facts: numbers in the bank accounts, insurances and properties. These meaningful memories, all the touching moments won’t be preserved and passed along. When our life are becoming incredibly lively with all these multi-media, it’s time for us to prepare our afterlife.

Structure

The goal of this website is  to help people create their memorial site. Their story, their works and their life journeys will be published after they passed away. The site will be ready for public to visit, send condolences.

Wireframe

The design goal of the homepage is to make a simple, clear demonstration of what we do and what you can do in afterlife. Above are two directions I tried, Version 1.1 is direct, but the feedback shows that it is hard to find the key information. Version 2.1 improved the layouts. The final design for the homepage below focus on the priority of introduce our sites with the contents that people create, and also being direct about ask people register right away.

 

Prototype

Using simple visual of their favorite moments to create the life stream on homepage. Mouse over it will show their story in one single line. The lifestream is picked by the visitors by simply like it or send flowers to them. After you click through their photos you can go visit their sites and all their life work and photos on. You also can see the messages people left on the wall. The most important feature is that you can send condolences, and it will show immediately on the interaction wall. You can also choose to deliver real flowers and the profit of it will be given to charity, so that the condolences can actually help some real people in the world.
