Front-End: Road Reports
I was the designer and front-end developer on the team that re-designed AMA Road Reports in 2013.
I wasn’t sure how to soften up something as technical as a map showing road conditions, so I went for a really saturated colour palette and round pins. This also solved another issue, which was that the map had a lot of noise – while it inherently holds a lot of information, I figured at least the bright colours would make that information easier to process. We also made the map full screen in order to make it easier for users to interact with it. This is a rails powered app, and the front end is built on Foundation.
