Branding, UI/UX, & Web Design
Heat is a website designed by the Digital Corps to promote an architecture class at Ball State. The class sends students to extreme climates to build temporary structures. They requested a website and blog to display the results of the project in a unique way. The professor wanted to use the website to promote the project to investors and potential students, and as a tool to talk about the project at conventions. I contributed to web design and identity design for this project. We also designed a blog for the class, to be used to promote the project, and in the future when the class goes to new environments. You can navigate to both websites using the buttons in the credits.

I worked directly on the identity design and branding for the project, working closely with the head designers to create an identity that communicated the oppressive heat of Death Valley.
This project was a unique one to work on because the client gave us complete freedom to create, in his words, an "untraditional" website. He specifically asked that we design multiple ways to navigate the site, keeping in mind that it is targeted both at technology adept professionals in the field such as architects, professors, and students, as well as relatives and friends of students on the trip who may be less familiar. To plan for our wide audience, we designed two ways to navigate the website that may appeal more to the different groups. I specifically designed both the mobile and desktop dropdown menu and worked with the other designers to create the interactive map navigation.
