Design Decisions

Define Direction

☞     Since client was not ready to launch his crowdfunding campaign, we should focus on telling the story of Terra Mars and provide information.

Define style

☞     During competitive analysis, everything was green washed. Futuristic style set brand direction


☞     Design became too information heavy,  use interactive elements to keep engagement



☞   Try not to make design decisions before you complete your research 

☞   Understanding the vision of the business is crucial to designing

☞    Information heavy websites require strong UX & UI to make ideas come alive
