The Barbican Centre is a performing arts centre in the City of London and is the largest of its type in Europe. Alongside with New! and Studio V4 I have developed a design concept, information architecture and visual designs for the Barbican's new website. The site provides a framework to structure and filter the vast amount of different cultural events and information based on the user’s preference. The proposal encompasses interactive event planning possibilities, intuitive access to Barbican’s archival data and a flexible template system for event pages.
Hayward is a luxury accessory brand created by Marin Hopper, daughter of Dennis Hopper & Brooke Hayward. With plans to breathe new life into the brand, NYC based NoFavorite approached me to create an online space that would capture the spirit and story of it’s creators. We created an e-commerce website to showcase Hayward product in a way that integrated the inspiration of the line with the product itself. Using responsive design and a minimal aesthetic, the site displays product among images of the Hayward family – giving customers a glimpse into life inside the Hayward world.
Linen Me is a major online retailer of linen based goods. Approached to rethink both the brand and its online presence I have developed a contemporary and user-friendly e-commerce platform that combines brand’s craft heritage and creates an intuitive shopping experience.
Wikipedia Redefined is an initiative to rethink everything about Wikipedia: from the brand to the user experience. The concept revolves around bringing forth the otherwise deeply buried site's features such as bookmarking, introducing information visualization as a device to navigate and sort data and reducing visual clutter. The proposal suggests transforming the site into two distinct counterparts — the research and the editing part. The UI correspondingly adapts to the user’s intent, emphasizing the most relevant functionality. While the project originally conceived as an independent proposal to Jimmy Wales was never executed, it generated an extensive discussion about Wikipedia and its approach to the user experience.
The monthly magazine Rigas Laiks (The Riga Time) has been published since 1993 in Riga, Latvia. Rigas Laiks is an intellectual magazine, it is highly regarded for the depth of insight in its topics, and for its hard-hitting, in-depth interviews. The proposed website design completely redefines how the magazine approaches its audience in the digital media. Clean minimalist designs place focus on the reading experience, removing all the unnecessary clutter. Made in collaboration with Not-Perfect | Y&R.
