Publishing: Summer of the Seventeenth Doll


An app for the iPad offering a truly immersive experience and an impressive archive for this iconic Australian play.

A first of its kind in Australia, this project was a collaboration between The Nest and Currency Press. It’s incredibly content rich, with video, audio and a comprehensively curated collection of stills, set designs, and correspondence, which document the history of one of Australia’s best loved plays.

The key to dealing with such a wealth of content is in the user experience. The app succeeds in being simple to use, beautifully designed, and elegantly organised. The added academic texts and script annotation facility make it a useful education tool as well.
