Arisal

Fully responsive scientific news website which allows you to sort through events and articles.
Typography was one of the most important elements of this project. Readability is absolutely essential for a news website, it was therefore interesting to research into ways of optimising type on screens.
We decided to go for a minimalist design which focuses on functionality and clarity in order to make the website as user friendly as possible.
News website homepages tend to be filled with lots of teeny tiny blocks of information. For Arisal we decided to avoid this approach as I felt it was important for the home to be uncluttered and simple. Instead I opted for a clear visual hierarchy that guides the reader down the page and leads them to the various sections of the website that we wanted them to discover.
