Goal

To make a website focus on environmental change and human behaviors. I also want the site to be interactive and allows users to learn and disclose information at their own pace. I want the information presented to be not text heavy, instead have it focus on visuals and color.

Design Process & Decisions

I researched about different locations that could be featured in the site, as well as what characteristics of each place should be focused on. I made spread sheets of all the data I collected. I wanted to the site to have color and live.I knew color would be an important aspect of this website, so I did color studies to find the best colors to represent each environment as well as that complimentary to each other. I also kept the idea of circular forms in mind to represent the concept of unity and connection.

Final Product

The site is split into three main sections
