EVICTION LAB SITE & MAP

Visual Design, MAP DESIGN, BrandING, UI/UX

 

The forthcoming Eviction Lab website (launching April 7, 2018) will make U.S. eviction data accessible and transparent, and bring new stories about the American housing crisis to public attention. Initiated by Matthew Desmond, Princeton sociologist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, Eviction Lab was formed of a team of researchers and design/development generalists with a passion for data, maps, and effecting social change. 

I was responsible for creating responsive visual design, map design and brand identity, balancing aesthetics with accessibility to make web and app presences available to users with limited vision ability, and opting for visual and textual concision informed by UX best practices to streamline usability. For the map tool, which houses a number of ways to filter and interpret census and eviction data, I opted for an open, airy UI which invites a user to explore and experiment.

More coming upon launch!
