Life in a Metro


UI UX Design, Web Development


"Life in a Metro is a collaboration between King’s College London’s India Institute and Calvin Tan, supported by the Cultural Institute at King’s as part of the Early Career Researchers scheme."

This website provides an interactive experience that educates viewers on what it means to be a young person in India today and what it means to grow up and figure out the world of friendship both offline and online.


To capture the social media aspect of the story, we came up with the idea to convey the story through a "chat window". We added chat lingo and emojis that was unique to how a young person in Pune would text. Each chat window would come with a subsequent block of information that conveys a particular idea or issue.
