Vertica Helica is simple, it is a collective for film buffs and lovers of cinema, no matter the degree of comittment. However there is a slight twist, the collective at VH is made up of VHS tapes in perticular. VHS trading and collection culture is a small but avid user-base of film lovers. With this website and app I hope to provide those fans with a way to express their passion with other users.
The goal was to create an experience that could also be carried over between your mobile device and a computer at home. I was more focused on the app experience simply because I have a new found love for app design and user experience. With Vertica Helica I wanted to create a sense of nostalgia, when you see the artwork, hear the stories, trade with members. Everything was thought of in a way that would evoke a user’s memories of the good ol days of VHS.
