The goal of this project was to reskin the RIT News page which currently looks like this. I was frustrated by the weak hierarchy and the lack of visual appeal. With this reskin, I wanted to bring life and color to the everyday viewers of this page.
Through a series of iterations the final design was achieved. Bellow are the two rounds of major iteration, as well as the final result.
UI, Visual Design
With my first set of iterations, the goal was to achieve a news site that was fun and exciting. I wanted the user to feel Playful, Happy, and Energetic.
My main inspiration for the design came from the iconic OP-1, an electronic synthesizer made by the Teenage Engineering.
