Test Resource Area

The Resource Area will be a dedicated area of this website that users will need to register and log in to access. The Resource Area is not currently live on the website, as we would like to test the documents we have produced, before they are made public. We have therefore made this page specifically for the user testing and are providing documents via Dropbox for this test. When the Resource Area is added to the website (after the test and refinement), this is what visitors will experience:

When visitors arrive at the website a button will be displayed on the main Navigation Bar enabling visitors to register or log in to the Resource Area.

Once logged in, visitors will see a short description of the aims of the Resource Area, with links to either download, or access resources online.

It will read as follows:

Welcome to the Playable City Community

Our vision is to establish a global network of people making and shaping their city through playful interventions. This site will act as a home for sharing tools, ideas, projects and methodologies, to strengthen all of our work. To begin, we have shared some of the insights we have gained from making work in Bristol, Lagos, Recife and Tokyo.
