Arts Everywhere

We made the nation’s very first art events app built for a university. Arts Everywhere makes it simple to discover and learn about the arts in the UNC Chapel Hill area and promotes a culture of creativity, all from a mobile device.

Carol Folt, chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, came up with the idea for the Arts Everywhere app to give the UNC community a resource to feed their need for creativity by making the arts accessible to everyone. After getting to know our talented team of app developers and designers, Chancellor Folt partnered with Rivers Agency to build her idea into an interactive app and bring her vision for a more creative and artistically-connected community to life. The app fosters an environment where the arts are accessible and take precedence in experiencing a fulfilled and meaningful life.

Available on both iOS and Android devices, Arts Everywhere is UNC’s campus-wide app that connects UNC students, teachers, faculty and alumni by providing users with an interactive resource to find and engage with creative events in the UNC-Chapel Hill area. The interactive design is completely customizable, allowing the user to create a personalized feed of events, discover new artists and genres, save favorite events, connect with friends in the area and invite people to events. Not only is the app the first of its kind, but Arts Everywhere has also created a unique space within university communities where creativity can flourish and grow and where individuals can create, share and engage.

Interactive showroom app that connects customers to Vaughan-Bassett’s full range of bedroom furniture.

Vaughan-Bassett is a family-owned furniture company based in Virginia known for its high-quality wooden bedroom furniture. The company commissioned us to develop an interactive app to be used in showrooms where, because of space constraints, only a limited number of furniture collections can be displayed at any given time. The app encourages customers to explore the wider Vaughan-Bassett collection in an engaging, informative way.

Built to function on touch screens or video screens connected to keyboards, the application is intuitive and easy to use, featuring large buttons and custom icons that encourage interaction, by design. Searches are easily customized through filters, while the “finishes” feature helps customers visualize color options. The “also in this collection” feature connects customers to related products.

When not in use, the app’s interface plays a demo video as well as a looping series of images that highlight the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability and its 700 American employees. Rolling out across showrooms nationwide, the app has proven to be a popular and effective sales tool.
