BBC News: '100 Women Freedom Trash Can'

This project marks 100 years since women threw items of oppression into a burning bin and features items women today said in a survey they would want to get rid of. It is a drag and drop game, featuring animations and quotes from readers. When an item is binned you can choose to read more about the history of it and its relationship with female oppression. It was translated into 25 languages.

I was lead developer on this project, responsible for the majority of the development work. The main challenge was to create a drag and drop interface across a variety of devices and browsers (including Internet Explorer) and taking accessibility concerns into consideration - such as screen reader or keyboard-only users - making sure they could still interact with the game.
