Choose a topic and create a capstone project to show off your conceptual and design skills. In other words, this project had no rigid guidelines, and was self-directed with the mentorship of my professor.
In the larger scope of things, I started out by picking a topic then trying to build the site around the content. When that was going nowhere, I thought about past projects I really loved working on, and knew I needed to base this on variability.
The site programatically formulates new design decisions based on sets of variables, each time a phrase is hovered over. This makes it next to impossible to see the same layout and design more than once.
The viewer is forced to see the same topic framed in different tones and perspectives, regardless of whether or not it's swayed toward their beliefs
I'm proud of the way that the concept of variability laid the foundation for the project, and that the design decisions were rooted in this concept.
