Process

After doing some competitive analysis and brainstorming ideas needed to produce the mood and feel of Dog Gone Rescue Organization’s brand identity. I then used Adobe XD to create low fidelity wireframes to confirm the design model of the project.

Target Audience

  • People looking to adopt dogs from a shelter rather than buying from stores
  • Animal enthusiasts looking to help save homeless dogs from euthanasia 

 

Design Choices

With the client being a dog rescue organization, I wanted to go with a very minimalistic look and to give the website a kind, very friendly feel. I used the F-type pattern throughout the website to keep the users attention flowing.  

Design Philosophy

The goal of Dog Gone Rescue BC was to build a responsive website that would really stand out to users.  The idea was to build awareness around the rescue organization’s brand using a simple modern design.  Given the nature of the client, I went with a very minimalistic and simple layout that displays all the information the user needs about the organization.         

Challenges

One of the biggest challenges I faced in this project was the fact it was the first fully developed website I had ever built using WordPress CMS. This project had a tight deadline so the analysis and design process was key in delivering a minimum viable product.
