    • organisation and filtering of the Collections is confusing

  • Airbnb https://www.airbnb.ca/ 
    • as a website experience it's highly appealing visually, it offers clear call to actions, and showcases what it is all about by displaying a large number of interesting examples right at the landing page (it's not a content site, so the focus is a bit different).
  • World Economic Forum https://www.weforum.org/ and the Climate Action Tracker websites https://climateactiontracker.org/ Both sites are useful in that they have:
    • information on various topics and areas arranged in drop-down boxes, 
    • pill buttons, etc. 
    • Focus on freely flowing, coherent, nested HTML and CSS elements over slower-loading and less flexible JavaScript elements, 
    • Succinct descriptions of the purpose of each page, and what users can hope to do with the information on each page. 
    • clear, bolded, elements of the site that encourages and entices users on how they can take action on issues.
