The purpose of this website was to catalog my personal feather collection. I wanted the sight to feel visual enticing, but also educational, so the look and feel of the site is modeled after an old explorer’s journal; with the browsing experience centered around having the user explore by scrolling in all directions.
The main page is an anchored “eternal scroll” where the collection is sorted by color vibrancy, softness/stiffness, and pattern complexity.
Reveal pages are close-up pictures of the feathers, including multiple feathers from the same bird. Each reveal page also includes all basic information about the bird, and several infographs that enhance the learning experience. The occasional easter egg is included in reveal pages such as pictures of the actual pet birds.
