thought this project was pretty special.
it's called "in pieces" and is described as "a CSS-based interactive exhibition celebrating evolutionary distinction." it is an interactive exhibition turned study of 30 of the world’s most interesting but unfortunately endangered species, the idea being that their survivals are literally in pieces. the project teaches about these species through facts and video that are *beautifully* built into the site. also, i love the idea of a digital exhibit and the ability to take your time with each piece of content.
the other component of this is that it's a code and design experiment. the project plays with css polygons, pushing traditional uses of code by using coordinates to design triangles which make up the animals. so all of the objects are made up of triangles that are created using only code. so cool.
they cover the stories of 30 endangered species. the topic is important and the design and user experience is stunning. i really encourage you to click through and take a look at how they designed the user experience of the site but let me show you a couple of my favorites.
