Waterfalls Multimedia Design Example

by Ken Loge -  2011

 

Overview:

This is an example of a multimedia design document describing a simple interactive slideshow program about waterfalls. A mockup is a great way to work out the details of a project before it is produced. In the images below, each screen is displayed similarly to the layout the actual functional program might have.

Specification:

This program should run efficiently in a web browser or within an interactive media or game environment. The navigation scheme should be easy to use, and the overall dimensions of the program should not exceed 640 x 480, or 800 x 600 pixels.

Title Screen - From here the user may go to the Information (Credits) screen, or the Main Menu.

 

Main Menu Screen

The user may go to the Information (Credits) screen, or choose one of the navigation arrows. The left navigation arrow buttontakes the user to the last image in the available images. The right navigation arrow button takes the user to the first image in the available images. Clicking a thumbnail image takes the user directly to that image. The cursor changes to a "Pointing Hand" when any navigation element is rolled-over. Text labels will be placed under each waterfall image, and clicking the text label for each respective picture takes the user to that image.

For all full-screen images below, the Main Menu button takes the user to the Main Menu. The left and right arrow buttonsnavigate to the next and previous image respectively for all the available images. If the user clicks the left arrow button at the beginning of the available images, the Main Menu comes up. If the user clicks the right arrow button at the end of the available images the Information (Credits) screen comes up.
