Zahn_UIUX

For the web design project, I chose a Greece-based organization, ANTIGONE – Information and Documentation Center on Racism, Ecology, Peace and Non Violence, whose aims are rooted in social justice, and whose current website is quite lacking (http://www.antigone.gr/en/). This allowed me to start from scratch.

To add some exciting design features, I used ancient Greek symbols on the side of each panel, which gives a sense of history to the site. It also connects Greece to its ancient roots. The contemporary elements of the site — text, images, shapes, icons — contrast the historical symbols, giving weight to the discrimination and inequality still occurring.
