Current design and what we want to do going forward

  • Yellow → danger

  • Colour - diversity

  • Welcoming, feeling included, a warm community

  • Like the under-construction idea

  • Idea of repair

  • Say “Welcome”

  • Inviting participation in more obvious way

  • Storytelling tool could be main call to action - ask people to engage with it

  • Focus on idea of call to action

  • Show some of the stories - pre-populate

  • Echoing different contexts, stakeholders, groups, that each partner is working on/with

  • Photos from different communities, videos

  • Focus on storytelling theme - how the site is structured and the language -

  • How we engage people’s senses

    • Crackling fire

    • Oral storytelling

  • Incorporate audio and video in simple ways on the site

    • Convey multi-modality

  • Agency that made entire site from youtube videos?

  • To get away from text-heavy or static images…

  • could be done with very short clips from the contexts in which we are working - http://recrearinternational.org/

  • Different versions of the site that work with high and low bandwidth

  • Get a good idea of what the project is about in the first page/fold

  • Have option to go to more media-heavy section of the site

  • Potentially add to UIO: option to remove/hide bandwidth-heavy elements

  • Progressive enhancement - start with bare bones site, allow turning on of CSS, images, etc

  • To the young people in Colombia “Social Justice” sounds like something from the government - called it “the planet is the school” instead

  • Sounds academic, institutional, theoretical

  • There is no social justice now - difficult to talk about with youth in school etc

  • Site as tool to influence government? Policy? How it is used by people in power?

  • Adaptive
