Project: CalBug Digital Archive, First Iteration: Information Archetecture
Role: UI/UX Designer, Project Manager, Information Architecture
About: CalBug is a collaborative initiative between nine California institutions with a goal to digitize over a million insect specimens. This web interface design (which is currently in progress) aims to be a fully accessible search interface to locate specimens housed in multiple museums. The first phase of the project focused on information architecture and building an easy to use and fully accessible search interface for both novices and researchers to accurately locate specimen records.
Project update: The current phase of this project is focusing on the aesthetic design of the CalBug website and the search function is being fine-tuned. Expected website launch: May 2015
